Having spent a residency at the Jack Kerouac House in Orlando, Florida in 2015, writer and artist Ciara Shuttleworth came to appreciate Kerouac enough that when she was on her way home from Orlando to the scablands of Washington state, she decided to take a Jack Kerouac cut out, "Flat Jack" with her as she took her own road trip West.
"Take your cooler there to stash [up on] bulk yogurts, cheese snacks and lunch meats for the road," she said. "These stores
One of the most evocative stories is of an ambitious mime who happens to be a bunny (as in "Easter," not "Playboy"). Bowers
This kind of life, this all too human life will kill us, but it is that certainty that makes it worth living at all. So for all those who no longer can, let us honor it.
Those days are pretty much done with now. The hotel changed hands a few years back and has been closed for renovations. It's transitioning away from a residential hotel, toward a more traditional role for overnight guests.
Ever since I got into travel writing, I've been told to read the works of Joseph Conrad, Jack Kerouac, Edward Abbey, Bruce Chatwin, Paul Theroux, William Dalrymple, Bill Bryson, and other white men.

From their emotional appeal to their practical advantages, it's no wonder motorcycles have been increasing in popularity in recent years.
The music of America is alive and well, on stage in the hands of the master of the selfless self, the king of the not-one's-one. I'd like to invite Knausgaard to the show, the next time he's here for a visit.
Sometimes, my memories have become so bound up to who I was with at the time, it's hard to say whether I enjoyed the place because I actually enjoyed the place or because I enjoyed the time I spent with that person.
Lunch with Andy Warhol. Some thirteen years later, after the Fair, I was invited to join a half-a-dozen hip, arty, New York types for a midday meal with Andy Warhol. I pride myself on a surefire, rock hard memory. My mind's eye never lets me down.
It's sort of like "On the Road" except the driver is on my car insurance. And when they finally decide to leave Maine (you're where?!), the driver has a cell phone and can call mom about flat tires, stripped lug nuts and how between the four of them, they're down to $2. OK, so it's not like "On the Road" at all.
The movie version of Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Scarlet Letter" is itself an embarrassment to classic literature, but Demi
