It was a sunny November morning, and I didn’t want to waste it.
The sea was a dark blue satin bedsheet; the cargo ships stretched and slept on it like newborn babies.
The clouds in the turquoise sky were few, white, and friendly — like floating daydreams.
The fresh air glided into my lungs and filled me with tranquility.
I opened my humidor to choose the cigar of the day.
The robusto vitola seemed right for the occasion.
I paired the cigar with homemade cappuccino and Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea.
It was a morning well spent.

Only I have no luck any more. But who knows? Maybe today. Every day is a new day. It is better to be lucky. But I would rather be exact. Then when luck comes you are ready.

From Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea
