i finished reading patti smith's memoir, 'just kids' and it's fantastic! it totally lives up to the praise and acclaim it's receiving. patti smith is such an icon in fashion and in music and her memoir reads like a childhood 'hansel and gretel' as the ny times review states. the memoir is about patti's life starting in new york when she arrives as an aspiring artist and finishes with her life after the death of her beloved best friend/lover/muse robert mapplethorpe. 'just kids' is a beautiful love story to her best friend, as well as a love story to being an artist and being true to oneself. photos: sam wagstaffinterview magazine
my heart is breaking. my prayers go to norway and to all the families effected by this act of sheer madness. "your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the
barriers within yourself that you have built against it."
