“Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.” Jack Kerouac
After 15 long months of waiting and preparing, we and Lady T are on the move again, heading south for the next four weeks towards new places, unfamiliar faces and unknown possibilities.
Maybe Kerouac didn’t leave anything behind but we certainly have. Family and friends who give us a reason to return home. A day to day life that can often be monotonous and plain but is still our own. Coincidentally, Jack Kerouac was born and raised in Lowell, Massachusetts, our hometown, and although I can’t imagine growing up anywhere else, I often feel the same urgency to go. The allure of the open road never wanes…our desire to see and do more is persistent and overflowing.
No matter where we go, home will always be waiting for us. But for now, we are the mad ones. For now, we are on the road!
