    Hi Allan, I love her and have followed it all…a stunning performance. She wrote a wonderful piece about her experience recently in The New Yorker.

      Hello, Jane, and thanks for the tip about the article. She serves as a wonderful example of being Human while in the Spotlight.

        Also, nice article in the NYT today about her “pop-up” performance at MOMA in NY. That would have been great to see! I saw her when she came to the Nourse this fall — she read from M Train and sang 5 songs…”People Have the Power!” 🙂

          “Sounds” like a lot of fun, Jane. Thanks.

    Just remembered to say thanks. We got so caught up in watching this forgot to say how much we liked it and was touched by it.

    This was a moving tribute. I would have gotten choked up too. Also, the weather-beaten steps are the perfect companion for the song.

      Thanks, Stephanie. I think that Ms. Smith showed us that it is OK to be Human in public.

    Thanks for sharing your photo and Patti Smith’s rendition of Dylan’s Hard Rain The damp steps pictured in the rain brought to mind another song on a similar topic with more melody, less poetry but both filled with pathos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YcerSbxEWo Thanks for sharing, Al.

      A great song, Al. Thanks for the link & reminder.

      I was moved by Patti Smith’s all-too-human moment in the second verse when she stumbled over the lyrics and asked to start over. A good example of regrouping and not giving up.
