Happy Birthday Jane

A happy birthday wish to one of the world’s most widely read writers in English literature.

One cannot have too large a party.   A large party secures its own amusement.  

—  from Emma 

No, I will not be throwing a party of any size today.  I will be content and thankful for the inspired work that Jane Austen left behind for all of us.

I’ll be on my way to Manhattan in an hour or so; sitting on a train with a book on my lap and reading words that were written back in 1815.  Words that have stood the test of time.

Jane Austen (16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817)
