      Hi Sherry, sorry I did not see your comment before. Yes, I am also creating a film about my uncle's life and times as well as the recovery of his work. Please see here we have a fiscal sponsor and our campaign to raise funds for that film is on http://fiscal.ifp.org/project.cfm/620/

      This is a great tribute to your uncle…, so we understand where the ideal came from and your drive. Do you see any other goals in the near future like this one.

      @Aaron Brookner, This is such a great cause I just signed up fpr the $35 pledge but have a question. Is it an actual autograph from Burroughs (as I imagine they would be in short supply) or is it a scanned copy? I hope to hear back soon!!

      Thank you so much Micha. This is great! And please help spread the word to all those out there on the road, or as Burroughs calls it, en route.

      we are only visitors
      we are here to go
      tracing out new paths
      along the old maps
      into a new direction
      go for walks in the rain
      and come back pleased
      with the beauty
      and boldness
      of the arts
      we dare to live for
      we are comic fighters
      beyond time/space
      bringing a new order
      into an old tale
      it is that old dream
      out of a deep night
      wake up and
      gloriously
      returning to sanity
      is very popular these days
      and perhaps
      if need be
      not difficult to do
      and perhaps
      if need be
      not difficult to do
      feel my lips
      feel the softness
      of my skin
      hear my heart beat
      fast and furious
      taste me
      taste my breasts
      my thighs
      my sex
      as we lie there naked
      in the moonlight
      in the sun
      we understand
      that we are here
      here to go
      for walks in the rain
      and come back pleased
      and knowing
      that all this is nothing
      all this is nothing
      without the beauty
      without our boldness
      as we dare
      live for
      the beauty
      and the arts
