Just a 23 year girl wandering through life, trying to find the right words.
Kerouac, poetry, travel, art, madness, heartbreak, beauty, and things that blow me away.
Kerouac’s cabin on Desolation Peak, when he was a fire lookout for 63 days, alone with just Mt. Hozomeen (below) out his window. He wrote about this time in the first book of Desolation Angels:
"I wake up and I’m on Desolation peak, and the firs are motionless in the blue morning—Two butterflies comport, with worlds of mountains as their backdrop—My clock ticks the slow day—While I slept and traveled in my dreams all night, the mountains didnt move at all and I doubt they dreamed…I look up and there’s mighty Hozomeen redbrown pinnacles high in the sky"
