dancers live on the margins

They do, really, and it's the reason my favorite ballet
teacher in New Orleans is leaving. She can't go through this
again, and says she's too old to have to start over on bad
terms, so it's back to Massachussetts where she has family.
Most of the people who can afford to really stay either have
roots or money, or are young and unencumbered.

I got to ballet class last night after a month or so, hopefully
I can make it more often now that I live five minutes away.

"So how do you like living Uptown?"
"Well, it's weird, but it beats the hell out of Mandeville."

What, you were expecting me to talk about the election? I'm
happy with the results, is all I have to say.
