Kintsugi helped me to understand my brother's death

The Japanese artform, based on a belief that a repaired pot can be stronger, taught me about tragedy and the ability to overcome itMy brother died at the age of 10, when I was eight. When I was nine, I shushed my best friend for mentioning him. At 11, I forced myself to stop turning my head away when we drove past a cemetery. And at 16 I spoke his name aloud for the first time, although it was many more years before I could actually talk about him.“The world breaks everyone and afterward many ar...

Opinion: It's time to remember what 'asylum' really means

The long history of Ken Burns documentaries ranges from places to people to entire wars. His latest collaboration with Lynn Novick, "Hemingway," falls in that middle category, portraying Ernest Hemingway's war-spanning, tumultuous life over six hours, which might not qualify as Hemingway-esque brevity, but proves fascinating nevertheless.

'Hemingway' tackles the writer in a documentary as big as his tumultuous life

Behold the Elaborate Writing Desks of 18th Century Aristocrats

Sitting or standing before an esteemed writer’s desk can make us feel closer to their process. Virginia Woolf’s desks — plywood boards she held on her lap and sloped standing desks — show a kind of austere rigor in her posture. “Throughout her life as a writer,” James Barrett points out, Woolf “paid attention to the physical act of writing,” just as she paid attention to the creative act of walking. The bareness of her implements tells us a lot about her as an artist, but it tells us not...

‘Hemingway’ directors Ken Burns and Lynn Novick say 3-part film offers surprises, new perspectives

It is not a fast or easy thing to make a documentary, filmmaker Ken Burns says, though the arrival of his new three-part series on the writer Ernest Hemingway came more slowly than most. “I found a scrap of paper from the early or mid-’80s about things to do, and Hemingway was on a very, very short list,” Burns says. “It said, ‘Baseball’ after ‘Civil War,’ which happened.” But after the huge success with his documentaries on those two subjects, Hemingway remained an elusive target as Burns and l...

WGA Awards: ‘Promising’ New Writers Talk Changes in Film Biz

Ernest Hemingway famously once said, “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” What Papa Hemingway meant, of course, is that the craft of writing is emotional, draining and often psychologically taxing, especially when mining stories that bring to the fore crucial social issues such as racism, […]

The 69 Pages of Writing Advice Denis Johnson Collected from Flannery O’Connor, Jack Kerouac, Stephen King, Hunter Thompson, Werner Herzog & Many Others

The internet is full of inspirational quotations about writing, many of them from accomplished and respectable writers. But what need could such writers have of inspirational quotations themselves? Surely true literary art flows from its authors without need of encouraging words, demand though it may sustained periods of labor, frustration, and even suffering. These days, more than a few who seek to create such art spend time studying not just its past masterworks but its living masters. “Some ...

Are You Scared to Write Your Life Story?

Have you heard that quote from Ernest Hemingway? To paraphrase, Hemingway said that there’s nothing to writing, other than sitting at a keyboard to bleed. Good writing, the kind that connects with the reader, requires brutal, painful honesty. The type that isn’t easy. The kind of honesty that takes serious levels of courage.  And what’s […] The post Are You Scared to Write Your Life Story? appeared first on WTD.

Maps are the safest way to travel during the pandemic - old maps even allow for time travel.This 1930s view of Hollywood captures the film factories of Los Angeles in their Golden Age.But it's not all glitz and glamour: look to the margins for the hard work done by immigrants. Maps as time machines If maps allow our imagination to travel without care or trouble, then maps of the past do one better: they are time machines into a different era.

Alabama looking to win 6th title under Nick Saban in showdown with No. 3 Ohio State

MIAMI — Trying to figure out which of Nick Saban’s Alabama teams is best is akin to picking Michelangelo’s greatest work of art or Ernest Hemingway’s best novel. They are all excellent in their own way. The first to win a national championship came in 2009 and is still the only Alabama team to finish unbeaten under Saban in 14 seasons of unprecedented dominance. The 2011 national champions had maybe the greatest defense of college football’s modern era of high-powered offenses. The current Crims...

Flair Magazine: The Short-Lived, Highly-Influential Magazine That Still Inspires Designers Today (1950)

All magazines are their editors, but Flair was more its editor than any magazine had been before — or, for that matter, than any magazine has been since. Though she came to the end of her long life in England, a country to which she had expatriated with her fourth husband, a Briton, Fleur Cowles was as American a cultural figure as they come. Born Florence Freidman in 1908, she had performed on herself an unknowable number of Gatsbyesque acts of reinvention by 1950, when she found herself in a ...
