The Old Man Who Fought an Empire

OldManBattlesSea9_9243Ernst Hemingway’s book The Old Man and the Sea contains a treasure of associations to life. Here we see it summerized in Treeiska, known to be a veiny language.

It’s a suitable story and picture for the fourth day of July.
(The planks are natural stripes. )
The old man, in Hemmingway’s tale, catches a magnificent fish which pulls him out to sea. He finally subdues the beast and battles with the sea and predators who want a piece of the catch. When he comes ashore in his village, nothing remains of the magnificent fish but the skelton, a story and an end.


“The sea of humanity grows stormier, the crew grows hungrier, humor gets necessarier (sic).”
Dartwill Aquila
