Would you look at this beautiful picture of a most wonderful queen Quentin Crisp and wearing our Birthday Queen hat no less. The bust is one my granny made at art school where she had him as a life model. That must have been a nice time.
If you're unfamiliar with Quentin Crisp I highly recommend a watch of this interview. He's fantastic, so eccentric. Such a mix of spiky and vulnerable and introvert and extrovert. and of course - hilarious.
I love him and I think you will too.
Also some nuggets of true wisdom.
"Neither look forward where there is doubt nor backward where there is regret. Look inward and ask not if there is anything outside you want, but whether there is anything inside that you have not yet unpacked."
