Another Great Mark Twain Quote

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. ~Mark Twain

In less than one week I'll be in Listowel, Ireland. My tickets are purchased, my passport has been found and my suitcase is ready to be packed. I'm hoping when I get there I'll have some sort of Internet access so I can check in kind of regularly. If not I'll be gone from my blog for a good 10 days. There are a million little loose ends I need to tie up before I leave...I had forgotten how much time going back to school takes, all weekend I was tied to the computer getting in my 2nd packet of work. And now that that's in and critiqued I am diligently working on the 3rd packet which takes me about half way through my first semester. Luckily a big part of my 3rd packet is the poetry workshop I'm taking with Listowel poet,John McAuliffe. I'm very excited about that and the fact that my uncle is taking the workshop with me is a bonus.

Lovingly,
