This week’s challenge from Sara at WP made me think about contours and designs in gardens and landscapes, carousels, chairs, and Gina Lollobrigida.  Curves are everywhere.

These curves are for looking through ~ into the carriage house of Ernest Hemingway. Inside is Papa’s Royal typewriter, his Cuban cigar-maker’s chair, and mementoes he collected from around the world. It’s here that he worked on Death in the Afternoon, Green Hills of Africa, To Have And Have Not, For Whom The Bell Tolls, and many of his most-famous short stories. And where, most importantly, he took naps.

I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I’m awake, you know?

    1. I have to agree with you. The house is small, and his writing space in the carriage house is smaller. Cozy for cigar-smoking. The guy wrote standing up, must have needed a nap after a writing blitz. He spent winters in Key West, mostly outside or on a boat. Then off to Idaho for the summers. He was larger than life, wasn’t he?
