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.


Yeah, yeah, I know. But if I am this quiet you know it is because I am thinking. Or running around Brooklyn dressed like a mermaid. Or filling in as my boss who is in Sweden for three weeks. Or getting ready for houseguests by doing odd totemic things like cleaning my windows.
