Young Clara – 22 March 1999
This book has come to be a great consolation to me. When something is heavily burdening me, I come here to talk to God, to myself, and think. Here is a place where my words are truly mine and no one else’s. I’m not judged in any way nor interrupted. I’m at peace and I very much wish I’d taken the time to fill in the empty days. There are so many memories worth sharing! I only wish I’d taken the time to write them. My life isn’t that hectic [after all].
A rather disturbing feeling of laziness has fallen upon me. I want to leap up and run, but I seem to lack the energy. I suffer from no illness [at least that I'm aware of] so I’ve concluded it’s entirely in my head.
