The Mildenhall Treasure - Ralph Steadman

One of his earliest published pieces, The Mildenhall Treasure is a rare example of Roald Dahl as reporter. The author’s preface to the story sets the scene beautifully: One morning in 1946 Dahl is at the breakfast table in his mother’s home reading the newspaper when his eye is caught by the story of Roman silver dug up in a Suffolk field and recently acquired by the British museum. 723 more words

The Literary Hangover

As the painfully deafening sound of the Alka Seltzer plink plinked into the glass and the fizzing sound was even enough to reach my pain threshold, I had time to reflect on the nature of the hangover, having the energy to do little else. 376 more words

Jack Kerouac

It's not about who you wanna be, it's about who you are

To put our faith in tangible goals would seem to be, at best, unwise. So we do not strive to be firemen, we do not strive to be bankers, nor policemen, nor doctors.
