Patti Smith’s advice to young people

Patti Smith | Louisiana Channel.

This Patti Smith video (filmed at the Louisiana Literature Festival) touched me so much; she is so on-point with everything she says, especially about how life is about loss and tragedy but it’s also about some really fabulous times, too.

FYI: Patti Smith’s Just Kids was one of the major influences in my decision to move to New York City. If you haven’t read it, you’re missing out on a tremendous story.
