Overview

In this, her bestselling journal, May Sarton writes with keen observation and emotional courage of both inner and outer worlds: a garden, the seasons, daily life in New Hampshire, books, people, ideas—and throughout everything, her spiritual and artistic journey.
"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."
In this book, we are closer to the marrow than ever before in May Sarton's writing.

Another brilliant book from May the one you can relate to irrespective of where you are in the world. I love the way she shares insight into her everyday life, the need for solitude, friends occasionally, confesses to fears, disappointments and unresolved angers and how her garden is her emotional release from the pain that sustains her throughout the seasons both on a spiritual and physical level.
