An Uplifting Reminder

We are not the Beat Generation. I don't want to compare us to them. But it is uplifting in these trying times to remember what people called them. The accusations, the insults, the police investigations, all because they were poets who wanted to do something different from everyone else. Shaping one's own reality and art is always deemed dangerous by the self-righteous.
