Jack London: Ashing the Cosmos














I admire his work ethic, sitting down each day, putting in the minutes, hours, days, years. Writing for craft and because maybe we don't know what else to do with ourselves but write. Thank you, Jack. Here's a volume you might like: Jack London Six Pack. Click to read six of Jack London's best pieces: Call of the wild, White Fang, A Day’s Lodging, John Barleycorn, Love of Life, Hoboes that Pass in the Night. And here's a beautiful passage:


"I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark burn out in a brilliant blaze than it be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleep and permanent plant."


Same, Jack. Same.
