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.


Is it three miles across? Could be. Everyone said to bring a bike, but I liked walking. I liked that it was easy to get distracted--look at this! Let's go here! Pancakes! And you could catch a ride on the only kind of non-human powered things allowed-those registered with the Department of Mutant Vehicles. Here are some (there were hundreds!), and they give you a nice idea of the whole candy-colored warped vision of the week...
