Lauren does find beautiful things.  She’s found & posted a blog called The Ballerina Project, which seems to be a few people, photographers and dancers, making art in & around NYC’s East Village.  Everything’s photographed and written so humbly, kind of like they’re all young and poor, and aren’t trying everything to get a toe in the door of big business.  Or big publicity, or big marketing.

What would it look like for me to do this with writing?  Or try to?  Something about the whole project seems so terribly ingenuous.  That gives it such a winning power, to me.  Maybe I can figure out how to make art and offer it on an open palm, like this.  Because I’m dying to, absolutely dying.
