I’ve Always Depended on the Kindness of Friends

Blurry, but in an artistic way. Right?

A very nice thing happened to me the weekend before last. My friend Natalie gave me that there book. Just Kids, by Patti Smith┬áis an amazing memoir of her time and adventures with Robert Mapplethorpe. I haven’t finished reading it yet, but will report back with an in depth review in the not too distant future.

Anyone who has met me will know that a book is my ideal gift (it keeps on giving), and I was struck that Nat had so easily given me the gift of friendship as well, disguised as a book.

Thanks Nat. I’m glad to know you.
