I’m just another girl.

I am in my mid-twenties and I am lucky enough to live with a wonderful musician in Edinburgh, which is surely one of the most gorgeous places in the world. I work in publishing, am always late, and still haven’t decided what I want to be when I grow up.

I like the usual stuff: amphibians, recreational smiling, civil disobedience, ink, gingerbread, drinking, stargazing, lists, books, bicycles, parentheses, life, you know.

I also love photography, as you’ll notice. I think the main reason for this is my inherent restlessness and wish for ubiquity; for as long as I can remember I’ve felt vaguely swindled by only being able to be in one place, with one person or group of people, at a time. Photographing everything twice (as my beloved brother puts it) allows me to hold on, gives me a chance to take precious people, places and things with me.

If you were wondering what the name’s all about, it is from the song Alice, from the album of the same name, by Tom Waits, one of my favourite things. My awesome uncle Roli gave me a copy years and years ago, when I was just a tiny little grasshopper heading out into the big wide world (or leaving home to go to uni, whatever) with a note saying I should listen to it ‘in dreamy weather’, and I did, and have loved it ever since. You should try it too.
