Ernest On Writing

"Then there is the other secret. There isn't any symbolism. The sea is the sea. The old man is the old man. The boy is a boy and the fish is a fish. The shark are all sharks no better and no worse. All the symbolism that people say is shit. What goes beyond is what you see beyond when you know." --Ernest Hemingway, 1952


The Station Fire, Rhode Island. Ten Years Ago Tomorrow

100 died.  200 injured, some with disfiguring burns.  Rhode Island cries.  Our hearts still go out to the families of the victims, a decade later.



Holden: "You know that song, 'If a body catch a body comin' through the rye'?..."
Phoebe: "It's 'If a body meet a body coming through the rye'!... It's a poem. By Robert Burns."
~J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye, Chapter 22
