Being Descriptive Is Dazzling



“In the morning I walked down the Boulevard to the rue Soufflot for coffee and brioche. It was a fine morning. The horse-chestnut trees in the Luxembourg gardens were in bloom. There was the pleasant early-morning feeling of a hot day. I read the papers with the coffee and then smoked a cigarette. The flower-women were coming up from the market and arranging their daily stock. Students went by going up to the law school, or down to the Sorbonne. The Boulevard was busy with trams and people going to work.” ―Ernest Hemingway, American Novelist


I sat there under a sycamore tree sipping my smores flavored coffee pontificating the finer things of life. I was in his house—the late great Ernest Hemingway. It was a dusty day at dawn in the meandering miserable and sizzling sun of Key West, there I was reading, “It was a fine morning. The horse-chestnut trees in the Luxembourg gardens were in bloom. There was the...”. I basked in the thought that I got a chance to be where this great progenitor of the English language once sat...once frolicked...once sipped tea…once danced with Pauline Pfeiffe...once whatever else.

Nothing else mattered.
