die platte von meinem vater hat gesellschaft bekommen. gestern fand ich im sale bei urban outfitters den faszinierenden bildband 'patti smith 1969 - 1976'. die fotografien stammen von ihrer engen freundin judy linn. der letzte absatz im nachwort von patti smith selbst sagen für mich alles:
i go back to the beginning when judy and i met on a summer's day in 1968. neither of our boyfriends, peter nor robert, survived the twentieth century. we never could have known we would outlive them, just as these photographs will outlive us all. but they both are here, embedded in our movie, the film not shot. and these are the stills. like cards that fell from a mystical deck. any way you shuffle them, they testify that once upon a time we were innocent and beautiful and anyone we imagined we could be.
