Graham had a lot of trouble with taste. Often his thoughts were not tasty. There were no effective partitions in his mind. What he saw and learned touched everything else he knew. Some of the combinations were hard to live with. But he could not anticipate them, could not block and repress. His learned values of decency and propriety tagged along, shocked at his associations, appalled at his dreams; sorry that in the bone arena of his skull there were no forts for what he loved. His associations came at the speed of light. His value judgments were at the pace of a responsive reading. They could never keep up and direct his thinking. He viewed his own mentality as grotesque but useful, like a chair made of antlers. There was nothing he could do about it. (x)

“I’m hosting a party and wanted to feel relaxed and comfortable but still shine a bit. I’m inspired by long white nights and my dear beautiful friends. I buy most of my clothes from unknown local designers and brands when abroad. The sequin pants are from Oman, jewellery from Bali, Helsinki and Oman, shoes from Bangkok, top by Acne.”

“My boyfriend gave me the scarf and all clothes are second hand except the Vagabond shoes.
I like printed, colourful trousers, gypsy-styled jewellery, natural colours and Jimi Hendrix.”
