jolie laide

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.

I'd have to check with my inner self, but I think this is the way I feel these daze: bright and shiny, but cohesively split.

cohesively split, I like that. Out the window of my office is the back garden of a rowhouse. They have hung long strings with tiny mirrors on them and they sway and refract and throw beams all over and around the shade tree. That's how I feel. So many different ways, each one its own truth, each one gathering in and emitting in its own way.

You wrote, "That's how I feel. So many different ways, each one its own truth, each one gathering in and emitting in its own way." And I thought, yes, that is you and what you do; you bring us truth, dancing light that shines and delights.
