Read from January 07 to 08, 2011

I've known about the book for a long time, but was never really interested in reading it. Then a while ago I stumbled upon one of Patti's mesmerizing photos and I just knew I had to read it.

I must be honest and say that besides "Because the night" (which is one of my all time favourite songs), I wasn't very much familiar with her music, let alone her poetry, art or private life. That's probably why I googled something every five pages or so: artists, musicians, poems, Robert's art, Patty's album covers and lyrics a.s.o.

I never wished to be an artist of any kind, but if I did, I wish I had their courage, innocence and commitment. And that wonderful and deep friendship.
