Secrets from the Mississippi

"The secret to getting ahead is getting started.” Mark Twain

Words from author Mark Twain could be amusing but pithy and wise. Just get started. I agree, and I try to face obstacles and challenges with that same attitude. My thoughts turned to Twain recently because he so loved the Mississippi River and I have been traveling it this past week. As we journeyed along, past plantations and small towns, tourist attractions and southern gardens, the people I encountered brought to life my understanding of those words.
