Day 194:  Read to Travel

Traveling on words

Day 194.  Jack Kerouac is taking me On the Road.  I’m reading the original scroll, not the 1957 edition.  It’s research for a character in my screenplay.  I love reading—novels, non-fiction, self-help, memoirs, classics, More magazine, tweets—you name it, I probably like to read it.  Reading is like traveling to me—another love of mine.  Instead of being on a bus or on a plane or on my feet, I’m traveling on words.

“There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars.”
―Jack Kerouac, On the Road:  The Original Scroll

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…reading.

  1. I like this comparison. Reading is such a getaway and I love it as well. Perhaps that is part of the reason we get along so well!

    • Yes, probably has something to do with it! 🙂

      Said perfectly, “reading is such a getaway!

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I so appreciate it.
