COT:
Just finished the Ernest Hemingway documentary from Ken Burns. It was a sad last third of his life given to excess and drinking. But he had a quote that made me think of the messages we often give our kids that they can become anything we want. Hemingway said that’s not true (see photo), but we do have control over what we practice. Hemingway would write for about 5 – 6 hours a day beginning at first light, then would focus on being a dad / husband after 1 or 2pm. That discipline started to crumble in his later years when his body was less forgiving of his alcohol abuse and he no longer embraced the suck.
