“It’s better to travel ten thousand miles than to read ten thousand books.”

I like the idea of being the guardian of small things… [Excerpt]


"Later, visiting Johnny's Los Angeles home, I became acquainted with his rare books and other precious objects. He never says he owns any of these things, preferring to call himself their guardian. He is the guardian of John Dillinger's derringer, a manuscript in the hand of Arthur Rimbaud, and Jack Kerouac's last typewriter."
