Those Yellow Roman Candles

One of my favorite quotes of all time is one by Jack Kerouac (who I'd totally marry if he were still alive)
I mean, look at him!!

It's from "On the Road" (which I need to read again), the fiancĂ© bought the original scroll version, and that, I want to read as well.

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!""
It is late summer and I want to make this month memorable. I want something to associate with the September of 2011. It's our first anniversary this month (the mister and I)
But that's not just it. I want September to be the blue centerlight of this year. I want to make it personal.

I want to daydream again, I want to be by the sea and close my eyes and listen to the waves talk to me. I want to fly, like a kite; free.

I want to fly and have people look at me and go "Awww!" a spider across the stars...spreading, everywhere, like fairy-dust

which to some might only seem like a cloud of talcum powder

But all it takes is a little imagination for the extraordinary to fairy-dust.

I am so, so glad I left that with you, and even moreso that you love it. :) If Kerouac were still alive (and still a dashing young twenty-something) you'd have to fight me for him. ;)
