The beginning of a wonderful journey.

“Hopping freight out of Los Angeles at high noon one day in late September 1955 I got on a gondola and lay down with my duffel bag under my head and my knees crossed and contemplated the clouds as we rolled north to Santa Barbra.”—Opening sentence of Jake Kerouac’s The Dharma Bums.  I like to remember how my favorite books begin.
