Dharma Bum

Re-reading my favorite Jack Kerouac novel, first read 18 years or so ago (yikes), Dharma Bums.

"The secret of this kind of climbing, is like Zen. Don't think. Just dance along. It's the easiest thing in the world, actually easier than walking on flat ground which is monotonous. The cute little problems present themselves at each step and yet you don't hesitate and you find yourself on some other boulder you picked out for no special reason at all, just like zen.~ Japhy"
Jack Kerouac
