Seriously, this man has no idea how much I adore him. Really! Mark Twain. He mentions MARK TWAIN.....I really love this. Do you think he reads? I do... ( I think he reads, I mean.)
Mark Twain, is in fact, buried in Elmira NY.
Halley's Comet, Mark Twain. Adam was there....
A few weeks back I was reading up on Halley's Comet online and I came across this:
In 1909, Twain is quoted as saying:
His prediction was accurate – Twain died of a heart attack on April 21, 1910, in Redding, Connecticut, one day after the comet's closest approach to Earth.I came in with Halley's Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don't go out with Halley's Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: 'Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together.'
First of all, this is pretty amazing stuff from the mouth of Mark Twain. He apparently, also had a premonition of his brother's death as well.
However, for me. I was reading this online and immediately turned to the 21st in the diary to see if it was there! AND IT WAS...
It was a real WOW moment for me! I am having so much fun with this diary project!
In honor of the 100 anniversary of the death of Mark Twain, I give you:
