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.


This is what the wall told me when I got up close enough to hear. It made me smile.

you are making me blush, so full of puppies and sunshine you are these days.

what I like to think is this: anyone who would pay careful attention to this wall, anyone who would give it such regard, it tells this tiny secret to. And I think that's wonderful.

and because of that last element you describe -- leaving the rest alone for now -- the wall is right.

and i think you're even more beautiful for being able to relate that.
