Falling Faster than the Stars

"I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running from one falling star to another till I drop. This is the night, what it does to you. I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion."

Kerouac - On The Road.

"Falling star"
Witold Pruszkowski 1884.

I wanted the quote as I had read it the night before whilst re-reading "On The Road"

The credit for the idea to post the Pruszkowski painting along with it belongs squarely to some Wiki person:

G'day Den,

Yeah, nice image all on its own, then if you square it away next to Kerouac it lifts the Canuck's sentiment nicely....

As to the last line mentioning "confusion", initially I misread that as "exhaustion" . . . "I have nothing to offer but my exhaustion . . . "

Say it ain't so! Keep shouldering into the wind


{by the way my word verification was "maxesmsi" . . . Max is me[s]...?}
