have you ever read Sometimes A Great Notion, big ass fat book but very good, the way he describes things sometimes i get a real clear picture of it in my head
I read the book, saw the movie. Movie was ok, liked the book better. More than his message which I suppose was about individualism? I like this descriptive writting about the flora and fauna, I am such a city boy, all I got is industrial images, I can hardly tell one tree or flower from another.
Yeah Kesey a good man, I think he had a more mature voice with women than did St Jack with his real gone chicks.
with Kesey and the merry parnksters it was different, he was definetly the ring leader, sometimes i feel that way in my own group and am rather sad about it, because i love the mix of individuality that came with the beat generation, not to mention the sence of community.
Feeling sad about being a ring leader?
even at this time in my life longed for community. i think the beat generation was a community of individuals, i mean really different people, different from one another, now if only we could achieve that on a national or global level. i'd love to acheive it in my own life.
I felt that way about litkicks, this is the only text based community that I have posted too since Litkicks became a closed exit ramp for me. Well I did post to thistles and marigolds a few times, and to The Scroll. And I made a bunch of posts to Freedom Hall before I found my way here. Knip warned a new poster here to be wary of "group minds" I felt that on litkicks, I don't here.
i could go on and on and on about this shit.
yeah me too, thanks for the comeback, I got to go. I owe myself a shot of whiskey, it is jitterbug's birth day and I want to drink a toast to him.
The windows are open it is a beautiful san antonio night, a low flying jet fighter as just flown over as I type, a Southern Pacific train is blowing its horn and rumbling by.
Momentary silence, I take three deep breaths and listen for the sound of happiness. A sereen goes off, ambulance.
