“Keep busy with survival. Imitate the trees. Learn to lose in order to recover, and remember that nothing stays the same for long, not even pain, psychic pain. Sit it out. Let it all pass. Let it go.” – May Sarton, Journal of a Solitude
I gave my grandmother a book for Christmas, one I had read before. The book was written by May Sarton, Journal of a Solitude and it was the musings diary of an older woman living alone.
