          Brain Pickings offers us a wonderful last day of the year essay in this story of Patti Smith and how she discovered the wellsprings of her own creativity. It includes Maria Popova’s musings on Patti, as well as two audios of the artist reading from her memoirs. The image of the swan and the blue sail is a painting for the imagination. Today is a good day for thinking about how you discovered the sources of your own creativity, a meditation for the end of one year and the start of the new.

“I felt a twinge, a curious yearning, imperceptible to passersby, my mother, the trees, or the clouds.”
