#024 margot the swan


"Margot the swan is one of those unforgettable ladies that all young women should meet. With an ethereal sense of her own style that instantly makes everyone else look scruffy, dated and unoriginal, Margot exudes a quality that, if you get close to her, you know might make what happens next change your mind about everything. If you take her fancy she may well stop to speak to you, often with a perfect one-liner of wit, or a question that works on fifteen levels, followed by a swoop of the chin and a piercing snatch of eye contact. As you fluster around for a response she turns and moves on, and leaves you feeling awkward and confused but oddly reassured that you were the one she chose to encounter." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
