Japhy


The real-life 'Japhy' from The Dharma Bums.
(amazed to find a photo!)
 I liked how the gifts he gave to 'Ray' (Kerouac) were always his own pre-loved possessions. There is worthwhile Thing-Think in that somewhere. It could be disappointing to get a used gift at times, but also could be way more cool... a prized possession of your friend's; there's heart in that.
