How’s this for a great simile on Venice?: “The Adriatic sea standing grey and yellow, like a fairy-city”
* A Movable Feast (his last work)
(“damaged wings and love of light”)

“Writing is a lonely life…but when a writer writes, he sheds his loneliness, he does his work himself… and must face his eternity… alone.”
Ernest Hemingway

“One must first of all endure.”
– Ernest Hemingway

The writer’s gift (like Hemingway’s and Sadie Jones in her book Fallout) – like all great writers – is to leave us wanting so desperately to believe that the story will continue …without us, once the scenery has been cleared away.”

PS: This (endurance and persistence) also mirrors the themes of my personal journey and writings… though definitely without the quality of the “master writer”.

Still…

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper,
he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted,
or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry.
He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,
‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

― Dr Martin Luther King Jr.
