Happiness hurts.
It makes one sensitive and sad.

    These are my people.


    Sylvia Beach, Ernest Hemingway and other friends outside Shakespeare & Co.

    “On a cold windswept street, this was a warm, cheerful place with a big stove in winter, tables and shelves of books, new books in the window, and photographs on the wall of famous writers both dead and living. The photographs all looked like snapshots and even the dead writers looked as though they had really been alive.”  — Ernest Hemingway, “Shakespeare and Company,” A Moveable Feast
