Journal of a Solitude

I finished the masterful The Heart is a Lonely Hunter last week. Simple brilliance. I'm now nearing the end of May Sarton's Journal of a Solitude. I can relate to Sarton's anxiety and feeling that she must keep producing as a writer. For this reason, I loved the following line on p. 89:
"The most valuable thing we can do for the psyche, occasionally, is to let it rest, wander, live in the changing light of a room, not try to be or do anything whatever."
