Hemingway was an Interesting Bird

leave a comment

Interesting little bit in a letter Hemingway wrote to a friend after he had to put an injured cat down:

A car must have run over him or somebody hit him with a club.

Not quite sure how you make the leap from, “A car must have run over him,” to “somebody hit him with a club,” but I guess Hemingway knew his neighborhood better than I do.

Saddest line of all is the final paragraph. Even his letters were amazing.

A New Look

leave a comment

Don’t know whether I’m sticking by this or not, but I’ve now switched back to a little cleaner theme that doesn’t require me to go nuts to create a single post. Prior to today I’d been using the stellar The Morning After WordPress theme, which was beautiful and very magazine-like. Unfortunately, it was getting to the point where I wasn’t posting as much or as often as I wanted to because I really had to think about the images I was going to use. In short, the old theme made this site more like a job than a blog. This new version of the Hemingway theme should make life a far site easier.
