And a poem set by Richard Wright
I recently found a great original of Nico's hard to find 1968 Elektra LP "Marble Index".
Loved the photo you shared, I should have known your paths had crossed at some point.
Patti - a beautiful poem for us from RW, thank you. You are such a great soul.
a very incisive poem from Richard....love that and love your talking about 'nothing'..
Good night, Patti. Thank you for talking about nothing. It was soothing, as always. The photo of you and Nico made me tear up. That was the year I was born. I'm not one of those idealists who thinks I was born too late; I just wish I could have lived at all the times and experienced all the things.
Thank you Patti! I'm a published haiku poet here in St. Petersburg, FL. This Monday I'm giving a haiku workshop to African American 8th grade honor students. I am so excited to introduce them to Richard Wright! I'm doing handouts with his bio, his haikus and his books. You are the best!
Thanks so much, Patti. Love your surroundings. But have to let you know that this was about something -- it was about Richard Wright's wonderful poem. Good night......
Patti, I love your chats 'with' us! Your curious, intelligent, quick-thinking mind is in full display! please continue to share your life! xxoo hope you had a pleasant weekend!
Thanking you, Eternally ,for all you have shared and taught me.
Hi Patti, Love your talks about nothing! It's not really nothing. Thank you. How wonderful that you have the book that you gave Tom Verlaine. Warms my heart.
Cheers! Loved to know your tuesday carbagge night is my B-Day. A friend of mine read tarot cards as a B-gift, just loved! And felt só Patti Smith i felt gratefull
I love Rumi as well!!!
Today my copy of “A Book of Days” arrived. I am enraptured by its quite beauty.
Thank you Patti. You made a rainy NYC day beautiful.
PS The Tide I ordered arrives tomorrow - a day late. The big A got its priorities right 😉
Thank you for your so special “nothings” Patti 🙏✨
Thank you for talking about nothing ... and showing us a part of your home and that wonderful picture (Jackson Pollock - I like his art so much). Sometimes "nothing" is so much more than talking about everything ... PS: The Poem is lovely. I didn´t know it before
I love M Train. Took me forever to read because I didn’t want it to end. Thank you for introducing me to to Richard Wright. Enjoy coming across poets I’ve never heard of. Sweet talking about nothings is inspiring as you give hope and dreams a chance.
