Emotionally, I wanted to stay. Intellectually, I wanted to leave. As always, I seemed to enjoy punishing myself.

Notes on Marriage
To be presented to my great grandchildren, on my golden wedding anniversary? "Great Grandma, you had feelings?" "Yeh. It was a disease I acquired in my adolescence. But I got over it."

In the journal I do not just express myself more openly than I could to any person; I create myself. The journal is a vehicle for my sense of selfhood. It represents me as emotionally and spiritually independent. Therefore (alas) it does not simply record my actual, daily life but rather — in many cases — offers an alternative to it.
