J.D. & Hemingway

Winning the Nobel Prize for Literature and penning nine best-sellers was gratifying, but not nearly as much as my relationship with Hemingway. He and I do everything together, whether it’s hunkering down in the writing parlor overlooking the lake or running with the bulls, which we missed last year for a book tour, but generally make a point to attend every year. That and the Great Migration in Africa. I know no greater inspiration than the pursuit of existential truth in the natural world. And you.

Between books, I concede to being a bit of an adventure enthusiast. I enjoy flying sea planes, free diving, mountaineering, jungle expeditions, those sorts of things. I suspect, however, that once I find my eternal muse, I will be most satisfied simply being in your arms.
