Today Anne's words [read by Claudette Colbert, with an intro written and read by Anne's daughter, Reeve] were with me in the car as I drove 194 miles round trip to South Jersey, to see my Aunt Edith, who fell, had a heart attack and got pneumonia. My Aunt Edith is strong. From her hospital bed, she was charming and smart, and worried about me getting home safely.
I just love this recording...check it out. I can't put into words how beautiful it is, how much it speaks to me about the parallels between the beach and ordinary life and about how women/wives/mothers/writers can find balance in their lives, and alone time. Anne's story made the miles go quickly.
- Church. Late, but glad I went. Aim to be on time more. Went in, alone, with smoldering anger toward H. and Fig. [It's a long story.] Anger didn't vaporize, but I did arrive at the line, "If today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts." I thought on that.
- Pressed for time but bought grilled vegs and artichoke hearts to have with my lunch.
- Got to see my cousin Lin [Aunt Edith's daughter] and talk. Connect.
- Walked Sug around block once.
