Who doesn't love a little Hemingway?
Hello to whoever might decide to read this post.
Firstly let me bring to attention this: According to The Millions blogger, Sonya Chung, “Actress Mariel Hemingway, granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway, will be producing a film adaptation of A Moveable Feast, a memoir of Hemingway’s early years as a writer in Paris”
Awesome. Hopefully it will be good. Hemingway, though not my favorite author (but he is up there), certainly had an interesting life to say the least.
Sort of going along with Hemingway-
I hate to show the same blog as I did in my previous post, but Maud Newton had a really interesting post on depression. In a nutshell, Maud explores the benefits and disadvantages to depression~ ‘one’ might ask what benefits? I encourage ‘one’ to read the post. From the blog- “some scientists are suggesting that depression — peculiarly prevalent for a mental disorder — is not a malfunction at all, but an evolutionary adaptation, a state of mind which can have debilitating effects, but also promotes highly analytical thinking.”
Anyway, the post got me thinking. Of all the books that I’ve read, and all the short stories, there always seems to be a hint of depression somewhere, be it in the tone, the plot, the dialogue or someplace else. So to whoever might read this, I’d like to challenge you to think about this question, could depression be a good thing?
