‘There are stacks of notebooks that speak of years of aborted efforts, deflated euphoria, a relentless pacing of the boards. We must write, engaging in a myriad of struggles, as if breaking in a wilful foal. We must write, but not without consistent effort and a measure of sacrifice: to channel the future, to revisit childhood, and to rein in the follies and horrors of the imagination for a pulsating race of readers.’ – from DEVOTION ✨ Happy Birthday Patti Smith. 🌿

Pattie Smith’s comments were inspirational. Sometimes we need to hear words spoken to us in this manner. It bespeaks of trying, just keeping going. Thank you.
So true! Everyone needs that inspiration at times. Simply reading from any of her books moves me into a more elevated energy whenever I feel stuck. Thanks for the comment and visiting.
