Right. We should never postpone a visit.
No, we shouldn't, but I'm sure everyone does, and it is often too late.
Oh too true! I read "At Seventy" - actually all her work - and liked it. I love reading journals. Perhaps one of my favorite was her "Journal of a Solitude."Mary
I like journals and letters. Good thing I don't work at the PO! haha
Thinking like that today. I read an obituary yesterday. Life is short.best... mae at maefood.blogspot.com
Of someone you knew? I'm sorry.
Which echos Meredith's latest post at Dolce Bellezahttps://dolcebellezza.net/2018/03/03/on-the-fleeting-nature-of-things/The rub comes in applying it . . . .
Yes, and I read it just after I posted. And you are so right.
Was it you who wrote about this book earlier? I ended up reading her Journal of a Solitude AND this one.....copied multiple quotes.
It may well have been- here https://lettersfromahillfarm.blogspot.com/2018/01/jacobs-room-is-full-of-books-january.html I can't tell you how it pleases me that you read them from this post. Thank you.
I have read May's journals at least 10 times each! They are comforting to me and I love her mindfulness to her inner and outer life.
Wow! I don't think I've read anything that many times!
I love journals, thanks for highlighting this again. If it's in journal format I like to go through the months, one at a time and not skip around. I am rereading Nigel Slater's Kitchen Diary again and sticking to the appropriate month. Obviously I am reading about March events now.By the way, this blog header photo is so wonderful, capturing a great scene. I would frame that photo!
Aren't you just so nice to say that about the picture. I'll pass it along to Tom. I'm kind of reading At Seventy that way. I began it on my 70th, which was on her 70th. Only hers was in the spring. So I decided instead of seasonally, I would read the entries on the same days as those after her birthday. For example, May 4 is the day after her 70th so I read it on the day after my birthday. (My gosh, what a clunky explanation!)
There are too many people I'd love to visit before it's too late, but we are so far away.
That makes it so hard, Kay.
