Thanks to all of you who participated in our discussion. It's wasn't the easiest for me because I was not familiar with the Beats. But I've learned so much from the tidbits and especially from all of you--as always. I have many questions I would like to ask Jack, but the one that's been bugging me ...

OTR QUESTION #30 - The Final Question

Well it’s that time again---time to wrap up another discussion. :bawl: And it’s been a tough road. But we’ve crossed it in style and learned a lot from each other—as always. DITHOT and I hope you will continue to visit ONBC for various general discussions, tidbits and get-to-know-you threads over t...

I think Johnny sees similarities in both these works and authors. The common themes seem to be expression of free will, the common thread of humanity that exists between all of us and living your life to the fullest in a humanitarian way respecting and appreciating each others similarities and diff...

:happybday: Hunter! FANtasticJD, we don't always have to be on topic. The more threads the merrier, as long as they relate to the book club somehow. Remember, the Code is just "more like guidelines". Thanks for the heads up. I would never have known, although I should have. http://img73.photobucket....

Hi Fansmom. :wave: We discussed the issue of how much was true vs. how much might be fiction in Quest. #22. I don't think we have an accord by any means, though. I think it is probably somewhere in the middle. :twocents: Also, there were a couple of interviews with Carolyn Cassidy that might be help...

I think Saroyan speaks to everyone no matter what your religion is. As for On the Road. I think Johnny sees it as freedom. "Free will" Something alot of people deny themselves. The line from Chocolat tells it best. "dont worry about so much not supposed to." also When the priest is giving the sermo...

OTR QUESTION #29

Johnny describes On the Road as “a bible”. Taken from the Le Musée Imaginaire interview, 25 August 2002, Frédéric Ferney asks JD: “You said you adhered 100% to that text, and that all the parts you played in the cinema conformed to what Saroyan says.” JD responds: “They're somehow related, I think,...

Re: OTR

Yes, I’m glad the actor encouraged me to recapture my On The Road spirit, and thank God the book was a Sal not a Dean. Like the actor, I’m glad I followed the book’s ideas and continued as straight down the line as I could. I'm glad that you were able to recapture that OTR spirit, Endora. I'm also ...

I was thinking that maybe it was our souls or spirits. But I think I like your answer better.

Re: Invisible links

It has to be a shared purpose or reason; after all, think why we are all drawn to posting on these boards. Clearly our man was the start of it, but in a way it's moved on to a shared understanding of where we want to go and want to achieve, that is, to move onwards in our various lives in an honest...

OTR QUESTION #28

On Pg. 211 Sal relays, “I told Dean that the thing that bound us all together in this world was invisible, and to prove it pointed to long lines of telephone poles that curved off out of sight over the bend of a hundred miles of salt.”

What is that invisible thing that binds us all together?

DITHOT and I were discussing this at one point and she brought up the fact that Johnny was quite young when he read Kerouac for the first time; one has to wonder if he has a somewhat different view now that he is more settled and has children of his own. I've been wondering the same thing myself.

Say, Liz, where on the central coast are you? That's my favorite area. We vacationed yearly at a small beach town named Cayucos, know it? Love that whole stretch from Morro Bay to Monterey. I love that stretch, too. But I'm further north in the Santa Cruz Mountains outside of Scotts Valley. OK all ...
