If you don't know, now you know ~ Patti Smith.

"Where does it all lead?  What will become of us?...It leads to each other.  We become ourselves." - Patti Smith 

Poet, writer, singer and photographer Patti Smith is un-apologetically Patti Smith.  She is tough and funny, passionate and completely original.  I have her picture on my desk and it's a constant reminder that it's about the ride, not the prize and to always be me.  Always.  

"Build a good name. Keep your name clean. Don't make compromises, don't worry about making a bunch of money or being successful. Be concerned about doing good work. Protect your work and if you build a good name, eventually that name will be its own currency. Life is like a roller coaster ride, it is never going to be perfect. It is going to have perfect moments and rough spots, but it's all worth it."  - Patti Smith

Her book is one of my all time favorites, if you want some more Patti, check it out here.  

I love, love, love her.
