“The road from appearance to reality is often very hard and long, and many people make only very poor travelers. We must forgive them when they stagger against us as if against a brick wall.” —Franz Kafka

My mother's diary

April 29, 1939  Friday - Andy and I talked again to-nite of marriage - religion - breaking up. What's the right thing to do? I think we really love each other - - And I think it's up to me to break it up.

The entry is done in pencil and the years have nearly completed their job of erasing it.

Lucky for me, she didn't break up with Andy after all. He's my dad.

Omgosh. YES LUCKY! But how cool to be able to read your mom's diary. I wish I had that. I know she had a lot of thoughts back in the day she kept to herself.
