treasure



This is a very special badge, since it was given to me by the great artist-musician, Patti Smith, once when I had the good fortune to spend some time with her a few years ago.

I quite like the way the peace symbol is upside-down in this photo. I think I wanted to see it that way because it looks kind of uplifting and hopeful!

I love it when little objects tell a story, hold a memory. It gives them an aura. This conjures up so many things for me: a dreamy sunny afternoon, meeting an idol, the music of the 1970s, the magnificent Patti herself...
