I started off with three pictures for a “Wordless Wednesday” post:
But then – I remembered some other pictures I took when I grabbed the previous photos:
I was at a B & B and they had a library with various old books. They had the dust jacket for Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea – but no book. Then, I opened up a different book, a picture about water, and I turned right to a page with a little piece called The Old Man who Knows About the Sea:
So I read about the Old man, who sometimes talked “to the sea instead.”
Now do you remember that I was looking for the Hemingway book?
Well I was looking for it because my special friend, Kim H., inspired me with her take on literature during our High School Years.
She and I also used to talk and talk and talk. We’d make tea and toast and then talk for hours on those cold, wintry Buffalo nights.
Kim comes to mind when I see certain authors or titles –
it just so happens that today (October 31st) is Kim’s birthday.
So this post is dedicated to Kim – my special friend from years ago – happy birthday!
And of course I need to end with a Hemingway quote
and a shot of whiskey:
“Now is no time to think of what you do not have.
Think of what you can do with what there is.”
― Ernest Hemingway, The Old man and the Sea
Hope you have a nice day – and may we all look forward with hope making the most of what there is now and is to come.
