Quote 23 May

” He always thought of the sea as ‘la mar’ which is what people call her in Spanish when they love her. Sometimes those who love her say bad things of her but they are always said as though she were a woman. Some of the younger fishermen, those who used buoys as floats for their lines and had motorboats, bought when the shark livers had brought much money, spoke of her as ‘el mar’ which is masculine.They spoke of her as a contestant or a place or even an enemy. But the old man always thought of her as feminine and as something that gave or withheld great favours, and if she did wild or wicked things it was because she could not help them. The moon affects her as it does a woman, he thought.”
―  Ernest Heminway, The Old Man and the Sea 

Does the moon affect the moods of a lady 🙂

I am immobile and recovering wanted to see some movies , did catch little bit of Casino Royale on television but soon decided to read the great writer’s book. I am reading and its been wonderful. I remember a colleague making a remark as we watched some presentations ” He spoke like he owns the space.” It is absolutely the way feel about the great writer and he absolutely owns ” Fishing “. It is as riveting as a National Geographic excursion on fishing and sea. The details, the command and structure. So far very compelling. I will do one more post as finish the book.

I am little better and will hopefully be good tomorrow. As for work need to flow with tide. As for love….” No one should be alone in their old age, he thought.”…

Good night friends! I want to try fiction on blog…

Hope you have a happy weekend!

Love, Suresh
