When I was the very drunk merch girl at The xx show in Berlin...
Think I got carried out like a human backpack that night.
I love these guys so much.
Congratulations to them on the release of their beautiful new record. https://itun.es/gb/6oTXfb / xxe.ht/uoyeesi
See you on the merch stand soon x
Happy Christmas from me and the books 📚🎄✨xx The Florence + The Machine Book Club
Really enjoyed reading one of my favourite letters at Porter's Incredible Women Letters Live event last week. Written by Patti Smith to her soulmate Robert Mapplethorpe ❤❤❤
Often as I lie awake I wonder if you are also lying awake. Are you in pain or feeling alone? You drew me from the darkest period of my young life, sharing with me the sacred mystery of what it is to be an artist. I learned to see through you and never compose a line or draw a curve that does not come from the knowledge I derived in our precious time together. Your work, coming from a fluid source, can be traced to the naked song of your youth. You spoke then of holding hands with God. Remember, through everything, you have always held that hand, grip it hard, Robert, and don’t let go.
The other afternoon, when you fell asleep on my shoulder, I drifted off, too. But before I did, it occured to me looking around at all of your things and your work and going through years of work in my mind, that of all your work, you are still your most beautiful. The most beautiful work of all.
