This week, I have been watching Downton Abbey again, so I thought I would share a classic piece of literature today. Charles Dickens, who is one of my favorite authors, wrote so many wonderful novels, and I am so excited to say that I had the pleasure of visiting his home in London several years ago. Classic literature will always be my favorite, because outside the Bible, it is the basis for all good stories. As writers, our experiences and our reading influences what we write, and what better person to be our influence other than Dickens? Happy reading friends!

Today I am going to post a line from:
by Charles Dickens
And the first line is...
"Night is generally my time for walking. In the summer I often leave home early in the morning, and roam about fields and lanes all day, or even escape for days or weeks together; but, saving in the country, I seldom go out until after dark, though, Heaven be thanked, I love its light and feel the cheerfulness it sheds upon the earth, as much as any creature living."
Happy reading and happy Friday!
