Today Francesca and I hung out with Patti Smith.
The poet/rocker/writer is in town so we thought we'd say hello.
She's got a new book, "Woolgathering", and we hooked up at Books and Books. She was gracious but acted as if she'd never seen us before.
She smiled, we smiled. Patti read my King Mango sweatshirt and seemed amused. I explained that's how it was when God gave the fruit king the gift of life. She said, "Cool", signed our books, and move on to the next fan waiting in line.
Sure, it was at best a minute but it was a very good minute.
