Patti Smith: “nothing is completely resolved”

11 Aug

Yesterday’s New York Times Book Review featured a review of Haruki Murakami’s Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage by Patti Smith. She ends her review with these words:

“Closure is an illusion, the winking of the eye of a storm. Nothing is completely resolved in life, nothing is perfect. The important thing is to keep living because only by living can you see what happens next.”

This last year, I finally read Smith’s memoir Just Kids and was profoundly moved.
