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.

It reminds me of the time Northwest Airlines put me up in this place for a night, when I was fogged out of a flight to Japan:

Be sure you look at all the pages, using the little arrows. I had a pool-view room.

(I particularly liked the Vikings plaque and tomahawk assemblage. which cultures are we stereotyping and pillaging? make up your minds!)

I wish I'd had a camera back in st. louis--my favorite sign was a banner across one of the Bosnian restaurants around the time of the Superbowl: "Go Rams! The Bosnians support you!"

As though all Bosnians were Rams fans.

Ah, the good ol' days.
