A quote from Jack Kerouac. This was not from one of his books, but rather, an essay he wrote in the 1950s that wasn't published in a magazine until much later. I haven't seen the essay, but I know he wrote a lot that people say has to do with Buddhist thought. I immediately thought of the Buddhist concept of emptiness when I read the quote.
The photo I found, to me, is the perfect complement. The cat is so zen! Another morguefile.com photo. What a great resource.
