I read diaries in order to understand the human condition, to figure out who I am. There is comfort in knowing others go through the same trials and tribulations. Seen through the freshness of others eyes the common can become beautiful. There are often gifts of discovery about books, music, a different way of life. I found this book to meet all these criteria. If you enjoy the journals of May Sarton you will enjoy this diary as well or perhaps even more.
