THE LAST FIVE ...
Closing up shop
It may be time for a change
Entry in the air
Music of the moment
Or ... BE RANDOM!

Thoughts on Kerouac's birthday, Mexico
The sun sinks slowly on Jack Kerouac's birthday and I wonder how he would've spent it this year. Here, in Mexico, in Lowell or San Francisco? Maybe Times Square, or Ft. Lauderdale, his final home. At 76, he would have been off the drugs, but not off life -- he always got a kick out of it.
The orange ball of fire that is our warmth and our light disappears into the sea -- I'm watching the world turn from this fourth floor Mexican balcony. Below those with ground seats applaud the day's end, though I have another few seconds.
It is now time to go out and live it up tonight, in Jack's memory, the way he would have.
