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 the garden, day two.

I have lived in six different places since I came to New York 16 years ago. That's a lot of disassembling and re-assembling. Tonight I am sleeping on a mattress on the floor for the first time in a very long time.

I laugh at your six places! This is the first apartment i've stayed in for longer than a year in eleven years...

Sending positive transition vibes your way...

Yeah, my rate of moving seems to have slowed down. BUt if you consider the fact that I actually owned four of the places I lived in New York, the hassle factor goes way up. We begin the cross country trek next week!

Dude! I am so rooting for you and wish to hell you would freakin blog more. But now everyone has a place to crash in the bay area. My fingers are still crossed for SF proper, but for now at least to my chagrin, we're living in Marin.

Thank you dear.

There is plenty to say, though most of my brain is taken up with school.

There will always be a moon over Marin.
