    Er, OK, what’s the story? Or perhaps more prosaically, what’s your excuse?

    What an almost completely brilliant picture. I say almost
    only because it should be an iPhone rather than whatever
    it is taking the image. Looks like you’re in a prison
    shower block.

    (I have to hit return when my typing reaches the edges of
    the comment box otherwise it disappears underneath the
    white surround leaving only little vertical cursor lines to
    show where the letters have burrowed to. Most odd.)

    pretty 🙂

    Dear Heart, No regrets with this self expression? Let’s
    count: 1) Your drag is the opposite of au courant. 2) When
    invoking the spirit of Piaf, always, always, the wee black
    Dior frock AND the gold cross at the neck. 3) When conjur-
    ing immortality, don’t mix inspirations: you look more like
    Sienna Miller’s whacked interpretation of Edie Sedqwick in
    “Factory Girl”. 4) Don’t try to raise your anima at 40–
    you are too old and it’s -pathetic. 5) Don’t put on such a
    serious runway pout in such a comical tableaux. Your not
    at your own jubilee– yet. I say these things to help you.

    A delicious image. A delicious soul. Full of challenge and
    poise. Shocking, funny, erotic, daring – I’d love to run
    my hands over those clothes and feel you breathing beneath
    those magnificent colours. What are you?, what are you
    saying? I just want to stare and enjoy the sensations
    this image creates in my soul. I laughed, involuntarily
    when I first saw this – and shivered – and laughed –
    its like falling from a great height – I can hardly breath!

    Oh my. Now that’s a lesson in attitude. I’m so not worthy…;)

    Are your toenails painted too? Just love when
    you show picts of your feet. Makes us feel
    like we get to see your most vulnerable side.

    Isn’t there something about too much blue eye shadow???
    But Red is regal.

    For sure this pic got replies. I was quite shocked, at first. Another amazing shot! Nice balance and reflection of reds & blues & yellows. Maybe not quite perfect with no flair to the hair. Did you do your own makeup? You’re on quite a roll, art-&jounalistically, aren’t you? Were you just admiring yourself, thinking Marlene Dietrich, or simply pursing your lips to freeze for this shot? Great shower stall. Looks like fun, maybe a bit intense, though. How did your getting decked out and shoting the shower self-portrait come about? I think I’ll stick to singing in the shower. I’m not so photogenic. Can’t sing worth a shit either, what the hay! Check out Leonard Nemoy’s self-portraits.

    Striking how much resonance a little lippy gets!
    The wig had made an exit by this stage of the evening – a biennial Diva Dinner held by a friend which gave me new respect for woman/drag queens.
    Clearly – clearly, I was being Amanda Lear. Wasn’t it obvious?

    listair Appleton: I have watched of late your part in
    the show Cash in the Attic on BBC and have very much
    enjoyed it and just recently found your website. So
    you might say I have become a fan of yours at a distance
