As promised, below are my Kerouac-olutions for 2011. It's a shorter, less ambitious list than last year. I figure it won't be as depressing when I revisit it at the end of 2011. I was going to add "gain 20 more pounds" and "drink enough beer to float a battleship," but those are givens, not aspirations.
1. Read Dr. Sax.
2. Take Crystal to Lowell Celebrates Kerouac!
3. Write a Kerouac-inspired song.
4. Write 56 poems.
5. Daydream a lot.
6. Take guitar lessons.
7. Buy Crystal flowers at least once a month.
8. Read Hayduke Lives!
9. Write an article about Krishnamurti and special education.
10. Travel somewhere new.
I am reading Dr. Sax now! After that though our lists differ.
