Often she found herself sitting and looking,
sitting and looking, with her work in her hands
until she became the thing she looked at –
that light for example.

The Monet Room

What was the most beautiful thing Morrissey ever said to you? His songs that he sang whilst I was on the other side of the glass. Those moments were transcending in the true sense of the word. When you have such an intense relationship and you are impressed with each other and reliant on each other and when it’s set to music and poetic, it’s like a deluxe version of a conversation. All those amazing songs he sang for the first time facing me. That’s an incredible memory for me.
What was the most hurtful thing Morrissey ever said to you?"I really don’t like those shoes." Obviously, he was wrong.
