It’s safe to say that in my life I have had zero interest in fashion – a completely alien world to me, and I know almost nothing about the subject. However, watched the documentary on Alexander McQueen recently and was impressed by his fearless approach to his work and life, and it was intriguing to learn of his passion for art, his hard earned craft, and his monomaniacal devotion to his vision, as well as the technically elaborate and spectacular, (sometimes) Grand-Guignol runway shows he produced. Perhaps even less interest in fashion after watching it (!), but the story of his life and actualized imagination was inspirational… recommended viewing.

“When you’ve got a terminal illness, you think about what your legacy might be,” she said. “My only answer is, we would hope that it would inspire people to see that they can do a life totally as they would like it to unfold. Live your life every day like a page in your book of life, and make that page as interesting as you can. Whenever you have a choice, say: Which is the better page in my book?”

Yay! Just reread this after something like 30 years. What a pleasure. Utterly fantastic. Not only is the writing itself beautiful but it’s also a great and suspenseful adventure story, in its way...
