Each time I read On the Road, it makes me want to go buy a whole bunch of trail mixes and go climb a mountain.
'On the Road' is my favourite book, although it's been a while since I've read it.
it made me want to break bones, go bankrupt, have my heart broken and drink myself into the ground - get swallowed by life and embrace my brokenness to the grave.
trail mix and mountains is probably a much better, more positive option however and I'll keep it mind

"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."
my mom's health has been pretty poor for a long time and whenever I think of writing her eulogy this quote comes to mind and captures her spirit and story so perfectly it brought tears to my eyes the first time I read it.
