I am currently also reading M Train, and it is beautiful. Patti Smith is good at making me cry. Her beautiful lucid and lyrical prose weaves all these random dreams, memories, artist, and just things together into an exploration of inspiration and creativity. Patti Smith IS a writer. As an aspiring artist, I have turned to Smith’s Just Kids repeatedly for inspiration, and, now, reading this, I have been getting my daily doses of Inspiration daily, however, it should be clear that Smith doesn’t just bring inspiration for creativity but for living, feeling, and being.
