Lately I've been feeling old. Age is just a number, and youth is a feeling. I'm trying to remember.
Last night I devoured Patti Smith's "Just Kids". She absolutely grew up in a different time, a world that doesn't exist anymore. That may be my favorite part of the story, the little bits and details of a turn of the century upbringing, a life that is gone with the wind. Romanticized, yes. Romantic anyway? Absolutely. Young, poor, in love, artistically driven, sentimental, eager, shy, conflicted, excited about life. Simple writing with little heart aching moments on every page.
I've also been obsessed with Portlandia lately (okay, as of yesterday...). The last clip is from their tour, watch full episodes on Netflix.
