In art and dream may you proceed with abandon. In life may you proceed with balance and stealth.
In art and dream may you be the trapeze artist, doing stunts on the tightrope that frightens so many. In life may you proceed upon the tightrope balanced, unwavering, arms out, extended.
In art and dream and life and all, may you seize that which Icarus failed to grasp, the freedom of the heavens.
Patricia Lee “Patti” Smith
