Patti Smith - Genius
Patti Smith just did an interview for the NY Times Magazine. At one point the interviewer said, "You seem very sane for a punk rocker." I loved her response:
"I had a very good model. My mother had no end of tragedy in her life. She would make herself get up and take a deep breath and go out and do laundry. Hang up sheets. She told me that when she looked at the laundry, the sheets flowing in the wind, and the sun, it was like a fresh start."
The photo is by Annie Leibovitz. You can read the whole interview here. I also really like the part where she insists that she uses conditioner.
