Loved it. I could read May Sarton's writing journals forever. It does amuse me, however, that when she was 63-64, she was obsessed by her own death which she felt would happen any day now although she was fairly healthy. She lived for twenty more years after this journal was published. She also fretted about the lose of her talent in her "old age" and yet the journal is beautifully written, edgy and powerful. Maybe she couldn't write her poems anymore but her talent simply found a new outlet in her journals. Fantastic. Highly recommended.

Oh, one other observation...the journal was written in the early 1970s and she's worried the world is going downhill. This from a woman who lived through WWI and WW2. Goes to show you that everyone romanticizes the past, even the people who lived through the very worst parts of history.
