"The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that
will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially.
If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry."

- Ernest Hemingway, "A Farewell to Arms"


  1. this is wonderful! your face, a face, blooming like a flower among thousand others, embodying each the essence of the field... and yet only you, a human being, can express this with words as well: a blessing and a curse at the same time, no?

    i am so happy you are posting! :-)

  2. a blessing and a curse it is, depending on a day. i laugh. thank you, Roxana.
    i am happy to be back in a slightly different format and mindset perhaps.
