Happy Birthday Jack Kerouac

BEAT writer JACK KEROUAC : March 12, 1922 – October 21, 1969

the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue center light pop and everybody goes ” Awww! ” — Jack Kerouac – On The Road

  1. Waited for that center blue light to pop (snicker). Waited, waited some more…. 🙂 Did a darty eye thing, Still no poppage.
    Scrolling back up to try what Graham there did. If that doesn’t do it, I quit
