dharma for one

I’m attempting to work my way thru Jack Kerouac’s book, “some of the dharma”. Reading a few pages at a time then posting any thoughts. Why “some of the dharma”? Because it’s what I have, so why not? No expectations, so anything of relevance I come across will be considered a gift. I’m not a student, practitioner or follower of Buddhist or Zen philosophy. I simply seek truth regardless what I read from a Betty Crocker cookbook to Hustler magazine. Kerouac’s book just seems like a more likely source of good information. Discussion, observation, suggestions about interpreting (understanding) what Kerouac wrote is encouraged.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.

  1. I’m reading a Kerouac book now, too: “On the road”.

      I’ve read much of Kerouac’s(and other ‘beat’ writers) work this year for the first time. ‘some of the dharma’ isn’t a story but rather 400 pages of notes, observations and other writings on the subject. Almost like reading someone’s classroom notes and private journal entries.
