From Kerouac's "On the Road"

A western kinsman of the sun, Dean. Although my aunt warned me that he would get me in trouble, I cold hear a new call and see a new horizon, and believe it at my young age; and a little bit of trouble or even Dean's eventual rejection of me as a buddy, putting me down, as he would later, on starving sidewalks and sickbeds - what did it matter? I was a young writer and I wanted to take off.
As am I off, en route to Moscow.

Have a safe trip! You're going to miss Lauren's 2nd b-day party :( See you when you come back!

Sniff, sniff. We'll miss you! And you know that your Dean would never set you down on starving sidewalks and sickbeds (I know the quote says "putting," but I like the alliteration of "setting" better.)
