And when we get there, we will go wandering

Happy birthday, [personal profile] rushthatspeaks, my best cousin, my blue-haired love. Tilda Swinton and Derek Jarman photographed by Angus McBean in 1987 hope it is a good day for you, too.

P.S. Did you know there is a Yiddish singing star in Mongolia who isn't Peter Kern's Mickey Katz? Her name is Amalia Rubin and she is also popular in Tibet. She studies shamanism and successfully celebrated Sukkot in a ger. I feel the entire plot of Johanna d'Arc of Mongolia (1989) may have just telescoped into a single person and you should know about her.

McBean has drenched his subjects in the glamour of an earlier era. How intense Swinton is- and how young.
