Lydia and Lorde
A brief tribute to two ladies (or should it be lords?)
of language, who are my muses of the moment. I am currently taking inspiration from these great writers for being true artists who resist the pressure to be turned into generic products for the benefit of the powerful (often male dominated) systems they work for. They break boundaries and expose stereotypes, which all art should do and benefits from, especially women's art - if such a category of art can be considered.
Thank you Lydia and Lorde.
Also, Can't and Won't (2014), Lydia's latest collection of short stories, has to be the best titled book ever. Can and will read it -- everyone should.
