For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been vacationing with family in Mazatlán. It has been a wonderful time to relax, read, explore, eat good food, take photos and appreciate life. Whenever I am here, I am inspired and enlivened by the Mexican passion for life.
There is a placard on the wall of a local building on which is written:
A Jack Kerouac 1922 – 1969
En memoría a su enstancia en estas playas
“…La unica gente que me interesa es la que esta loca por vivid, loca por hablar, loca por salvarse, con ganas de todo al mismo tiempo, la gente que nunca bosteza, ni habla de lugares comunes, Dino que arde, arde…” ON THE ROAD Sociedad Historica Mazatleca junio 2001
(Translation) …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…
I often yawn, but I hope my yawns are caused by tiredness and never boredom with life.
