“It all began with Hemingway, as so many things do. Specifically with The Sun Also Rises, or, as the Brits call it, Fiesta. The latter title being apposite, because part of what I carried away from that book in my youth was the sense that drinking wine was cool and sophisticated. And let’s face it, this is one of the reasons we read books, especially in our youth, particularly books by Hemingway and Kerouac and Lawrence Durrell: to find out how to live and how to pose and where to travel and what to eat and drink and smoke along the way. Everybody in Hemingway’s first novel is drinking wine.” – Jay McInerney
On May 6, 2012 a perigee full moon appeared over San Francisco, the largest full moon of the year and one in which the earth was closest to the moon. It turned out to be smaller than I thought it would be and as we were late getting up on the hill across the bridge thus didn’t get the shot that we’d hoped for. According to some scientists a perigee moon is also associated with natural disasters. Interestingly enough, May 6 2012 was the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the titanic!Super Moon over the golden gate bridge on May 6th, 2012.
