From My Readings: Jack Kerouac via Natalie Goldberg

Last April I read Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg. In it she quotes Jack Kerouac. I’ve been working on my 35th Year Manifesto, the rules by which I want to live my life in the next year. These ideas are part of it:

  • Accept Loss Forever
  • Be submissive to everything, open, listening
  • No fear or shame in the dignity of your experience, language and knowledge
  • Be in love with your life!
