Today my friend Ruth Davis, an expert on all things related to Mac computers, shared a link to a Donna Baier Stein’s website called “Words, Spirit & You.” I loved it and actually “liked” the page after just one experience with it.
Here’s today’s picture and the quote that goes with it.
“I have been writing my heart out all my life, but only getting a living out of it now…. … it’s not a question of the merit of art, but a question of spontaneity and sincerity and joy I say. I would like everybody in the world to tell his full life confession and tell it HIS OWN WAY and then we’d have something to read in our old age…”
— Jack Kerouac
I think it’s wonderful that Kerouac wanted the writing of memoir to become universal and a source of meaning in old age, something he never got to experience. He died at age 47. Hats off to Jack today and to his idea.What do you think this quote from one of the founders of the Beat Generation?
