Susan Fales-Hill Susan Fales-Hill One Flight Up

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...
These inspiring words come to us from Beatnick hottie, Jack Kerouac (thank goodness I was in Pampers when he was in his prime or I too would have been “On the Road”… to perdition!)

Welcome, reader, to a world of exuberance, joy, light, irreverence, laughter and culture (high and low.) Are the stresses of life “too much with you?”
Are you so mired in the mundane that you’ve lost all sense of the world’s wonders? Have a seat, help yourself to a cup of Angelina’s double thick dark chocolate cocoa with a dollop of whipped cream and let us explore all that delights us. Let us vent about that which aggravates us. Let us commiserate about that which saddens us, and let us find comfort and inspiration in the
contemplation of beauty in all its forms (from Victor Hugo’s epic poetry to Hugh Jackman’s epic pectorals.) This is the world, not as it is necessarily, but as I would like it to be, “la vie en rose
colored glasses.”
Feel free to share, comment, vehemently disagree. Only indifference and boredom are unwelcome here. And now, on with the “feast!!”
