Has this already been posted?  Takes place at Kapuche Lake, Nepal in January, 2021.  Pretty dramatic.  I believe this is a powder snow avalanche  The action starts at minute 1:00 or so.  ~z

I recently watched the new Ken Burns doc on Ernest Hemingway; still available to stream for free on PBS.
https://www.pbs.org/kenburns/hemingway/watch/


I never read Hemingway; mainly b/c the scenarios of his novels never interested me.  I recognize that his style was ground-breaking for its era, but man, what a train-wreck of a life.  Fascinating, nonetheless. One thing new I learned was the numerous head injuries he had which may or may not have contributed to his issues. Are there modern fiction authors so over-celebrated while they're alive?

I watched that also and learned alot about his life that I hadn't known. His writing style was new for the time and certainly became highly praised.

Not a style I like but that shouldn't matter to anyone else.

Norman Mailer is also a highly praised writer with a different style but somewhat similar persona.
