My friends Charlotte and Jane
Reading a book by Karen Smith Kenyon, THE BRONTE FAMILY--PASSIONATE LITERARY GENIUSES. According to her bio she lives in SD, it would be fun to ask her a few questions about writing her book as I live in San Diego too.
To me, Charlotte and Jane Eyre are magical figures. I visited Haworth a few years ago and it was practically an earth shaking experience for me. Charlotte and Jane represent a certain unshakable truth about mankind--seriously, I could hardly keep from crying when I saw her tiny dress as if I knew them and they were my friends that had endured suffering and hardship--well, in a way I guess they are available to everyone as a friend because they are a classic in literature and it is easy to see why.
Visiting the Bronte Parsonage was really quite inspirational. I would love to take that trip again and this time I want to take the walk on the moors--everyone always says to bring a raincoat just in case....
