Day 199:  Mad to Live

Day 199:

“I shambled after as usual as I’ve been doing all my life after people that interest me, because the only people that interest me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing…but burn, burn, burn like roman candles across the night.”

–Jack Kerouac, from On The Road, The Original Scroll

I’m mad to live—to create.  What are you mad to live for?

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…what you’re mad to live for.
