The Last American Vagabond

The Last American Vagabond

Living in the moment means, ultimately, coming to the understanding that life means never arriving anywhere, that you are always on the way to something else, somewhere else, and the time for living is right here, right now, while you’re on the way there.

Perhaps no American ever wrote — and lived — that better than Jack Kerouac.

I love that this image of mine graces the cover of L’ultimo vagabondo americano, an Italian anthology of Kerouac stories.

Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.
