Item Details

"I am here alone for the first time in weeks," May Sarton begins this book, "to take up my 'real' life again at last. That is what is strange--that friends, even passionate love,are not my real life, unless there is time alone in which to explore what is happening or what has happened." In this journal, she says, "I hope to break through into the rough, rocky depths,to the matrix itself. There is violence there and anger never resolved. My need to be alone is balanced against my fear of what will happen when suddenly I enter the huge empty silence if I cannot find support there."

Opinion

From Library Staff

Left alone with her thoughts, May Sarton shares her feelings on solitude verses company and the beauty that exists somewhere in between.

"That is what is strange--that friends, even passionate loves, are not my real life, unless there is time alone in which to explore what is happening or what has happened."
