Although it was published in 2010, I recently read Patti Smith’s book Just Kids and loved it. It is a National Book Winner and New York Times bestseller. I remember Patti Smith’s music from my teen years but now I am delighted to have found her as a writer. I didn’t know she had published so many interesting books. The bonus of reading her book is it inspired something deep with in me and my own art is a bit more free and raw because of it.
“In art and dream may you proceed with abandon. In life may you proceed with balance and stealth.” – Patti Smith
“In my way of thinking anything is possible. Life is at the bottom of things and belief at the top, while the creative impulse, dwelling in the center, informs all. – Patti Smith
