Patti Smith…if you know who I’m talking about, the name evokes a certain air…

Some ill-informed critics have called her a ‘punk’ rocker, because she performed in the 70’s, playing gigs at places like CBGBs, and hung around people like The Ramones and The New York Dolls…

I performed in the 70s, playing gigs at places like CBGBs, and hung around with people like The Ramones and The New York Dolls…but i was never a ‘punk’…

But people love to label other people, even if they’re wrong…

And people evolve…this one time ‘underground’ singer/songwriter named Patti Smith, just received a national book award in literature, for her memoir, “Just Kids”…

In her acceptance, she was quoted, with tears in her eyes, urging book publishers to ‘not let technology kill traditional books’…amen…

The written word has seen better days in this country, and so has Patti for that matter…

She recently lost both her brother and her husband, and yet, she has evolved into something wonderful, something beautiful, that, she always really was…

We need to see these things in each other, instead of just ‘labeling’ them…what is that old expression…”you never get a second chance to make a first impression…”

That is true, but…what if you hold onto a wrong impression of someone…

…or perhaps they hold onto a wrong impression of you…
