“I write because I love it. Words are free, and they soar with wings unbound from my mind to my fingers. And then they travel great miles to reach your eyes. Here are the stories that I have to share. They stem from my observations, my experiences, my joys, my anguish, and my pure love of writing. They describe, they explain, they argue, they laugh, they cry. They are for you.”

(sorry about the bull-fighting “bit” in “the master writer’s” quote). So how about supporting a campaign to get rid of it in Spain (especially), but also world-wide!

“Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all.

“Look across all sport and observe the truly great. All had this zest for combat, this taste for being truly tested. All wished to explore (and even expand*) the limits of their own possibilities…”

“The driver is expected to explore the inner places of his desire by taking everything to this limit…to translate it into a sublime peak only he can reach; but the trouble is they’re all doing it…. on a narrow ribbon of track, together.”

Hemingway Up in Michigan: The Love That Haunted the Legend

THE UP NORTH READER

In Cuba, they called him Papa. You’d find him fishing for marlins or drinking whiskey or daiquiris in a local watering hole. He’d do the same in Key West.

In East Africa, you’d find him big game hunting, the concluding photograph captured with the legend kneeling above a lion or antelope.

Ernest Hemingway. - [ca. 1930] Photo from Toronto History. In France, he’d be writing in a small upstairs room, or sipping coffee and walking along the Seine. In July, he’d travel with friends to Pamplona, Spain, to witness the running of the bulls.
