Poet May Sarton once wrote, "People who have regular jobs can have no idea of just this problem of ordering a day that has no pattern imposed on it from without."

This week’s guest has never had a problem with ordering her own day, in fact, the fashion icon has long resisted the structures often imposed from without.

Sarah Jane Adams is a self-made antique jewellery dealer, designer and became an international model in her sixties, responsible for the #mywrinklesaremystripes social media movement celebrating the beauty in ageing.

Her new book, Life In A Box: An Unorthodox Memoir illustrates the deeply personal connection that we have with our belongings and our lives. But, as you’ll soon hear, Sarah Jane Adams lives her life very much outside the box.
We talk about how her daily life resembles a sliding tile puzzle toy, how there is no such thing as certainty, being a misfit, living with openness and joy, solitude, self-sabotage and pressing the reset button.
