Quote of the Day!


For what it's worth: it's never too late to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

Benjamin Button (Slightly Adapted)
From the movie: 'The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button

Books/Reading Quote of the Day:


Even when reading is impossible, the presence of books acquired produces such an ecstasy that the buying of more books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching towards infinity. We cherish books even if unread, their mere presence exudes comfort, their ready access reassurance.

- A.E. Newton

A visit to Papa Hemingway


In August we took a day trip to Ketchum and Sun Valley, Idaho. While there we took time to visit Hemingway's gravesite and the Memorial (located a few miles away). The memorial overlooks what was once one of his favorite flyfishing streams.

It says: 

Best of all he loved the fall...The leaves yellow on the cottonwoods, leaves floating on the trout streams and above the hills the high blue windless skies...Now he will be part of them forever. 

—ERNEST HEMINGWAY, 1939
