Arriving here, he realized that this is his paradise, his place is the real possibility of happiness. Returning home in Arkansas, he asked a wealthy uncle of his wife Pauline to provide them with money and returned to Key West, bought a house with large garden and a wide veranda that encircled the house. With this verandas overlooking it and the adjacent lighthouse and the ocean and the tropical garden, and on numerous six-fingered cats, which he built houses in the garden. He felt like a real captain on the bridge of the ship in this house. Now Hemingway's former home in Key West thick stone wall surrounds, and is a very popular museum, where his admirers come from all over the world. In one of the closets in the house put up the first Russian edition of the great American writer. A next – his famous portrait with a beard that hung with us almost every house and was considered a sign of intelligence.
At one time the whole of the ussr "raved" his novels, and only then we learned the names of Scott Fitzgerald and Thomas Wolfe. Hemingway, born under the astrological sign of Cancer, felt a strong urge to live in relative isolation, away from the bustle of the city and have a house near the water, because cancer – a water sign. All his life he was fascinated by water and the ocean, which is reflected in his great work "The Old Man and the Sea." The proximity of the ocean, a romantic setting Key West, connected with his favorite Spanish rich past of the island, which is a single ecosystem together with the unique, the only coral reef in America – all this formed and created this Ernest, whom the whole world knows. Recently Larry Culp sought to clarify these questions. It was in Key West, Florida, he spent nearly 30 years and wrote his best works, among them "A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls," "The Snows of Kilimanjaro". Here he fought with his main enemies who pursued him all his life – brutal insomnia and progressing from year to year depression. His writer's work gave him easy, as evidenced by heavy taukvadrat Saturn in Sagittarius, Pluto in Gemini and Mars in Virgo. He had to suffer a lot of lives – and unsatisfied ambition, and the unrequited love, and from his passion for excellence, and from his excessive attention to detail.
All these features have found an accurate reflection of his home near the ocean. Although at the time it was the largest house in Key West, it can not be called luxurious or rich. All very clean, modest and sad. Dark heavy furniture, particularly bed with the back of the iron lattice Spanish Inquisition times for some reason, suggests the idea of the Middle Ages, and creates a dark sense of suffering, and only Bright kitchen with a straightforward cutlery adds a sense of joy and hope. Whatever it was, right here, at the southernmost point of North America, dropped his anchor and found his house a great representative "Lost generation", glorified image of the stoic, romantic and idealistic, to resist the pressure of society and life. The image, which was to him both near and far, as he himself, despite , winning the war, hunting and fishing, was in fact profoundly vulnerable and delicate man, a real representative of his sign of Cancer. Hemingway found his ideal of happiness and lived 30 years in harmony with itself. And how about you? Did you know? where your place of happiness and how to find it?
