Zen and the Art of Cross Country Driving

I never know what I’ll find when shopping for books. Yesterday’s haul contained this item from 1966. Documenting the author’s thoughts while driving an old 1941 Lincoln cross country during the summer of 1963, ‘Short Drive, Sweet Chariot’ touches on Fellini’s movies, Hemingway, the true nature of art/artists, literary criticism, death, madness, religion, the first Armenian, native-American indian, negro and female Presidents and more. It reminded me of ‘Illusions’ by Richard Bach and I enjoyed it very much.

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.
