Never is a long time

“There was so much to write.  He had seen the world change; not just the events; although he had seen many of them and had watched the people, but he had seen the subtler change and he could remember how the people were at different times.  He had been in it and he had watched it and it was his duty to write of it; but now he never would.” – Ernest Hemingway, “The Snows of Kilimanjaro”

    Never IS a long time, but then we writers are given to hyperbole.

    Happy New Year to you and Susan.

    i try to stay away from hyperbole. it can be difficult to do given how polluted our culture is with advertising.

    happy new year to you and all of yours, too.
