I, I WAS STANDING. YOU WERE THERE.

This week I had a long convo with very tall Swedish singer-songwriter and feminist fave Frida Hyvonen for a future issue of Plan B. A highlight, when we were discussing the mix of fiction and truth in her lyrics:

I would rather pull myself back if I start lying too much, if it becomes a fiction I find dull or inexpansive… nonexpansive? Whatever the word is. I find when you let go of what you think is true, you find a new truth that can be just as fine. After all memories are all interpretations, and we betray ourselves on autopilot a lot.
