We’re both reading this amazing book by American singer-songwriter and poet, Patti Smith. It basically captures the time she was with the photographer, Robert Mapplethorpe in the late 60’s/early 70s in New York. They were best friends, lovers, and kindred spirits and its interesting to see how they both started out. Overall, its a pretty inspiring read but is also sad and at times, scary. But it also reminds you of how persistence and always believing in yourself pays off.
