>Happy Birthday Jack

>
[Jack Kerouac, late 1944 or early 1945 New York City. Allen Ginsberg]

Jack Kerouac would have been 89 today. His birthday might be celebrated here any number of ways. We thought best, on this occasion, to point you towards Allen’s wonderful essay, “Negative Capability: Kerouac’s Buddhist Ethic” (recently made available on-line). A Buddhist and a Catholic and a Humanist, and, first and foremost, a writer. Happy Birthday, Jack! – Long may your books be read and your beneficial (beatific!) influence reign!
