What an enlightening weekend I had! Hubby and I, and two of my sisters-in-law did a tour of the Mark Twain House in Hartford, Connecticut.The tour did not only give us the opportunity to marvel at the fineness of his house, but it also gave us a glimpse of his humor, his kindness, and his humaneness. I only knew Samuel Clemens as the author of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, and The Prince and the Pauper. Now, I know how generous and kind he was to those in need. I admire him more. To remember our visit, I got myself a Mark Twain Notebook pressed with his signature. It has a smooth faux leather cover, and inside are Mark Twain quotes with blank pages to write on. I have scribbled part of my first entry on my new notebook. May I be inspired to fill it with more.Happy blogging!
