Simple living: Dharma Bums

"Happy.  Just in my swim shorts, barefooted, wild-haired, in the red fire dark, singing, swigging wine, spitting, jumping, running - that's the way to live" - Jack Kerouac, Dharma Bums.

Read this book!  I picked it up at the Red Cross store in a fantastic coup where I scored this AND some vintage, boxed and unused ping pong bats and net for my friend's husband who was getting a ping pong table for his birthday the next DAY.  Fluke.  

Ping pong aside - this is a great book to inspire you to just stop having stuff and read and hike and drink wine with friends, and read poetry and write poetry, sleep under the stars and swim in the sea and so on and so on....

"...get a friendly smart sensitive human-being gal who don't give a shit for martinis every night and all that dumb white machinery in the kitchen." - Jack Kerouac, Dharma Bums.
