the mad ones...

This quote was sent to me by Letha long ago. It is very special to me and emulates quite well the people that I surround myself with.
“The only people for me are the mad ones,
the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk,
mad to be saved, desirous of everything at
the same time, the ones who never yawn or
say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn,
burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles
exploding like spiders across the stars.”
~ Jack Kerouac
Last night when my husband and I decided to turn in, he noticed a plethora of yellow wax that had dripped all over our wooden headboard. I had left a candle on the wall burning earlier that day and now it was no longer sitting on the wall stand but had "exploded like spiders" all across our headboard and the tip of our sheets. I was expecting him to be a bit annoyed since it was on his side of the bed but then he told me he liked the way it looked. I thought about the quote and smiled. Of course he would...he's one of the mad ones and I adore that about him.
