Day 51 Kerouaction: On Interconnectedness

"'We're all in this together!' yelled Ponzo."

Would someone please tell that to the Republicans?

But I digress. The point here is that we're born, we die, and in between we experience - with everyone else - life. The common human experience connects us all. It reminds me of Madame Griggs, my high school French teacher, who used to say:

The ins and outs
The ups and downs
The comings and goings
Of life and death
Are here to stay*

Jack would appreciate the French reference. But, again, I digress.

Dig the ride and remember that you are not the only passenger!

*Google translated this to French follows. Yvan, what would it be in Quebecois?

Les tenants et aboutissants
Les hauts et les bas
Les allées et venues
De la vie et la mort
Sont là pour rester
