I’m in love with you. Yeah, it’s that bad. You’re so beautiful to me. Shut up! Lemme tell you. Let me. Every time I look at your face or even remember it, it wrecks me. I don’t have enough time in any day to think about you enough. I feel like I’m going to live a thousand years cause that’s how long it’s gonna take me to have one thought about you which is that I’m crazy about you. I don’t wanna be with anybody else. I don’t. I really don’t. I don’t think about women anymore. I think about you. I had a dream the other night that you and I were on a train. We were on this train and you were holding my hand. That’s the whole dream. You were holding my hand and I felt you holding my hand. I woke up and I couldn’t believe it wasn’t real. I’m sick in love with you. It’s like a condition. It’s like polio. I feel like I’m gonna die if I can’t be with you. And I can’t be with you. So I’m gonna die - and I don’t care cause I was brought into existence to know you and that’s enough.

I started going grey quite early on, it’s a genetic thing, I have my father’s hair and by the age of 24 I already had grey hair, just like my son who is 26. The difference is, when I discovered it I was horrified, it made me run for the nearest colour dye. For a long time I coloured my hair but I got really tied of that and when I turned 40 I decided, “I am going to have grey hair”. And I chopped it all off, and it grew again within a couple of months, and I then experimented with the length. It’s harder to find work as a commercial model with a bob, I could represent a particular age group but I wanted to have long hair, and may hair grows very fast and very thick. And I decided I didn’t want to cut it and it became not just a signifier but a whole series of signifiers representing women, there’s a whole movement about embracing your grey as part of your ageing process. Fine, except I don’t want the whole idea of ageing to be reduced to this kind of thing – “if you colour your hair you’re not ageing well” or “if you don’t colour your hair you are ageing well.” No. It’s about grey being accepted as a colour, and separating it from ageing. There are young women in their 30s with grey hair. I won’t regard them as old, most of them colour their hair – grey is not necessarily to be associated with old age. I found with my very long grey hair it became easier to find work as a model because in fashion and editorial it’s all about being quirky, it’s all about being different – long grey hair, yes that works. I used that to my advantage.”

Aleister Crowley’s rice recipe:

Riz Aleister Crowley (to be eaten with curry)

Ingredients
- 1 cup brown basmati rice
- sea salt
- 1/4 cup sultanas
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds(1)
- 1/4 cup pistachio nuts
- powdered clove
- powdered cardamoms
- turmeric powder (enough to colour the rice to a clear golden tint)
- 2 tblsp. butter

Steps
Bring two cups of salted water to a bowl. Throw in in the rice, stirring regularly.
Test the rice after about ten minutes “by taking a grain, and pressing between finger and thumb. It must be easily crushed, but not sodden or sloppy. Test again, if not right, every two minutes.”
When ready, pour cold water into the saucepan.
Empty the rice into a colander, and rinse under cold tap.
Put colander on a rack above the flames, if you have a gas stove, and let it dry. If, like me, your stove is electric,  the rice can be dried by placing large sheets of paper towel over and under the rice, soaking up the water. Preferably the rice should seem very loose, almost as if it it has not been cooked at all. When you’ve removed as much water as you can,  remove the paper towel.
Place the rice back into the pot on a much lower temperature.
Stirring continuously, add the butter, sultanas, almonds, pistachio nuts, a dash or two of cloves and a dash of cardamom.
Add enough turmeric that the rice, after stirring, is “uniform, a clear golden colour, with the green pistachio nuts making it a Poem of Spring.”
