jolie laide

I started this when I lived in Brooklyn and struggled for grace in a city that grants moments of beauty and ugliness breathtakingly close to one another. Now I live in a place where things are a different kind of ugly and the beauty is pedestrian. I struggle with that.

Last night was a six mile run, a visit to the Monday night pool league, sashimi dinner which has never tasted so good, and not just a Brush with Fame but a First Name Introduction to Fame.

Most delicious: the cab ride home. Slicing through the dark city, cool air, and Gillian Welch crooning in my ears "One monkey don't stop the show, one monkey don't stop the show, one monkey don't stop the show..."

Yes, I am only myself. I eschew all other pseudonymity.
