    My very first time reading Papa and I absolutely LOVED IT Sometimes the experience you have with a book can be effected by many things beyond the narrative itself, and I think that is certainly the case here While I believe I would have loved this story regardless, there is no doubt that the stars aligned themselves perfectly to make this a singularly special read for me.Let me explainLast year, I was in Napa with my wife and two of our best friends celebrating my oh shit 40th birthday My very first time reading Papa and I absolutely LOVED IT Sometimes the experience you have with a book can be effected by many things beyond the narrative itself, and I think that is certainly the case here While I believe I would have loved this story regardless, there is no doubt that the stars aligned themselves perfectly to make this a singularly special read for me.Let me explainLast year, I was in Napa with my wife and two of our best friends celebrating my oh shit 40th birthday It was the latter part of October near the end of harvest time and the weather was perfectDUH, it s Napa We were staying at our favorite Napa sanctuary, the Villagio Inn and Spa Though pricey, Vellagio is just about perfect, it s centrally located, with wonderful rooms, and one of the BEST breakfast spreads in the worldHey, when you are going out drinking all day, it is important to load up on foodstuffs to avoid alcohol related trouble have a nice big breakfast before ...

    There isn t any symbolism The sea is the sea The old man is an old man The boy is a boy and the fish is a fish The sharks 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

    It is intimidating to offer a truly critical look at such a classic, so we will ease into it with a few images The GOP has offered us a ready made item to begin this list, and yes, I know that John Stewart already snagged this one and threw it back.I turned up a visual art concept that fits in, for a restaurant based on EH themes Although I did not sit for this photo, the resemblance is indeed strikingAnd, of courseThe Old Man and the Cee Lo.I suppose am certain there are plentyimages one It is intimidating to offer a truly critical look at such a classic, so we will ease into it with a few images The G...
