Jack Kerouac

I'm trying to work out what it is about Jack Kerouac that is so special to some people.
Have I missed something, having read several of his books which I enjoyed
 I'm still trying to work out why he is held by some people in such high esteem???
Just watched a TV programme about him, which did not answer any questions for me.

Busy doing nothing..

Busy doing nothing, getting nowhere, but never stopping??
Well after a trip up North with an old friend life seems good.
Lots to do, it's just finding the time or should that be deciding what job to do next.
I've been meeting up with this old friend every year for the past 16 years.
Every Year we travel round together laughing and joking all the time.
I wonder if we met up more often the same would happen, would it wear off..
It's a good feeling when you seem to have someone on the same wavelength with the same crazy sense of humour..

Interests?? Over time my interests change..
I've always wanted to build a Boat (I think a lot of People do??)
But epoxy resin and such things don't do good things for my health, so that idea is out of the window.
Next came the Qayaq, a Skin on frame way of building an Inuit watercraft, this I decided would be too limiting?? where would I use it? would it be stable enough to use on my own especially if I took it out to sea??
The answer I came up with was "No".
Then I started looking at Currachs, a traditional irish craft, Skin on frame built, fairly cheap, fairly easy, so now I spend a lot of time studying these craft.
Learning about these craft and their uses has become more of an obsession as I have always had an interest in History and Traditions.
Such as archery etc..
