essentials for prose

I recently read Jack Kerouac's essentials for prose. I thought I'd share some of them with you. Accept loss forever
Be submissive in everything, open, listening
No fear or shame in the dignity of your experience, language , and knowledge
Be in love with your life
I think we could all stand to fall in love with our life so take this smidgeon of advise for today.


  1. Thank you for sharing this timeless wisdom. Could you explain what 'accept loss forever' means?

  2. This is more than a smidgeon of advice; it's deep and powerful. Your blogs beautifully marry good writing with life lessons.
