Patti Smith on Singing at Bob Dylan’s Nobel Prize Ceremony 12/27/2016

In January I will be talking about potential in my blog. This article, written by Patti Smith, reminds me that even when prepared, the unimaginable can occur once we are in action. It's okay to keep moving anyway. "Why do we commit our work? Why do we perform? It is above all for the entertainment and transformation of the people. It is all for them. The song asked for nothing. The creator of the song asked for nothing. So why should I ask for anything?

I am extremely tired today, still fighting jet lag and woken up at 4:40 am for a meeting that was supposed to happen at the old 5:30 am, but I have it with people who don't change the time. Needless to say I was late. The meeting did not happen. I never fell back asleep. All I want to eat is bread. Really curious. I am fighting the craving for now, but I may just have to give in to the urge. I'll try to resolve with my morning exercise.


My cousin, Yvonne, shared this with me. What a lovely show of strength and beauty.
