My Brightest Diamond
#16.1 - DISAPPEAR Réal : Vincent Moon Shot in NYC, 2006 CAE - #16.1 - My Brightest Diamond - DISAPPEAR It was all there: a red dress, a suitcase full of instruments, a beautiful park, a lake, a little Edith Piaf, and a bunch of laughs. Quite a wonderful morning in the midst of Brooklyn’s July heat. I remember it as if it were yesterday. It was a Friday morning near the end of July. Shara and I had decided to meet at 10am by the southwest entrance of Prospect Park. Luckily, I was staying right next to the park, and Shara also lived just a hop and a skip away. We didn’t know each other at all, but, nevertheless, I told her to come alone. I was going to talk to her about an “intimate encounter”, a kind of suspended moment that would renew the way we create, and other silly things to reassure her. However, she had such a soft voice over the phone that I decided not to alarm her with my crazy ideas. Fortunately, I had gotten her contact info through a pretty reliable and reputable bunch: Padma Newsome (who was actually Shara’s teacher for a brief time), and The Clogs (which also features the sixth member of The National). So it seemed like I had done my work in order to get in touch with her. My Brightest Diamond is Shara Worden, a delightful woman who wears ravishing red dresses that suit her well. She has just started to be widely recognized, especially for having been a staple member of Sufjan Steven’s band and his opening act for some time. She just released her first album, but there’s more to Shara than that: she’s not just a piece of plastic that I pass on to friends or hear on my computer, not part of my infinite collection that blends into the background. There is, for example, her striking red dress, which you could stare at in awe for an eternity. (It’s funny, because I was talking to Padma a couple days later and he remarked, “And you know what’s the saddest thing? She’s already married...” Oh, poor Padma, poor us!) About half an hour after we met, we were almoreless
