“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” ― Jack Kerouac, On the Road
Friend, mentor, cheerleader, philosopher, hand-holder, WRITER…Cort McMeel opened a big unfillable hole in the world by leaving it on Friday, April 19. Instructor at Denver’s Lighthouse Writers Workshop, Cort was the very definition of Jack Kerouac’s fabulous yellow Roman candle. Help support his widow Sharon and their two kids by buying his novel Short.
Until we meet again, friend.
