In 1973, May Sarton moved to a house on the seacoast of Maine. It was a place that was alone in all but a few months in the summer, with the sea and the woods, and a wide sky ever present. She discovered that what she has to give does not depend on others. This is her journal of that time.

WHEN I MOVED to this house by the sea in May of ’73 I had it in mind to keep a journal, to record the first impressions, the fresh imprint of a major change in my life, but for a year and a half the impulse to be silent and to live into this new place before speaking about it remained very strong. For months the sea was such a tranquilizer that I sometimes wondered whether I had made a fatal mistake and would never be able to write again. Not only is this house larger and more comfortable than the Nelson house, but my life inside it has changed.

May Sarton charts her second act in Maine in this graceful elegy about life, love, work, and growing older When May Sarton uprooted her life after fifteen years in the refurbished New Hampshire house with the garden she tended so lovingly, she relied solely on instinct. And something told her it was time to move on. Accompanied by her wild cat, Bramble, and Tamas, a Shetland shepherd puppy-the first dog she ever owned-Sarton embarked on the next chapter of her life. The house she chose by the sea in the Maine village of York is completely isolated except during the summer months.

Today the sea was gentle compared with antipodean oceans where I have sported like a dolphin. My problem was almost a technical one. Even though the swell was fairly mild I had a ridiculous amount of difficulty getting back onto the rocks again. My fingers, questing for a crevice, were again and again pulled off. Becoming tired, I swam around trying other places where the sea was running restlessly in and out, but the difficulty was greater since there was deep water below me and even if the rocks were less sheer they were smoother or slippery with weed and I could not hold on.

May Sarton describes her internal and external adjustments to life on the Maine coast where a deepening sense of solitude and oneness with the sea brought her to new heights of creative passion

I think it would be impossible for me to read one of May Sarton's journals and not enjoy it. They all have a similar ambiance and put me into my comfort zone from the very first page. I love both the beauty of her surroundings and the depth of her feelings. However, I do prefer her journals in which she is confronting more personal demons. She is still relatively young in this journal--59--I believe when it opens. She develops more health issues as she ages. And, ironically, I, unlike many who dislike hearing her moaning and groaning about her aches and pains, find her medical issues interesting (and maybe this is because I'm nearing 70). This journal, in addition to the usual observations about nature and animals, contains more worldly observations. Also, she includes a long poem of hers from the past which was a few pages long. I'll admit that I am more interested in having her adhere to the journal form. If I wanted to read her poetry, I would order one of her poetry books. There was enough here to interest me because I have become very curious about May Sarton, but I think at times I was a bit frustrated with her choice of topics.

Surprised by the success of her first journal, A Journal of A Solitude, May Sarton followed it with this second journal. Not quite as interesting, but it contains the themes that will continue through her journals—her preoccupation with the weather, love of gardening, and the importance of her friends.

Leaving the small house she lived in, she moves to a three-story house along the coast of Maine.There she struggles with the challenge of trying to keep a garden in the severe weather and the coming and going of her friends.

She was a difficult person to know, but she was honest, and that comes through in her journals. It is an interesting journey, and I'm glad she shared it with us.

Sarton is a novelist, a poet and a memoirist .... It is the last that i think she most excels. She moved to Maine at age 60 and kept this journal. It is a thoughtful, contemplative and exquisitely written narrative of growing old and living in solitude. It is a quick read, but every page can be read over and over so truthful are its insights
  • Nuadora
I chose this book only because I long to live by the sea. I did not know anything about the author which caused me to do a lot of research especially when she mentioned those who visited. I especially enjoyed her descriptions of the birds, the flowers and the ocean. Many of her descriptive phrases will stay with me.

Sarton achieved some interesting mixed results with this journal, which was intended as a journal of happiness. She positioned it as a counterweight to her book A Journal of a Solitude which was clearly, well, *not* about happiness.

I can see why some people find it irritating to read, although I never do. She contradicts herself frequently-- complains of how she never gets time to herself and then runs around the Eastern seaboard like a bandersnatch. She can be prey to muddled thinking and faulty logic and sounds as though she'd be a real pain to be around much of the time.

But still, it's inspirational to read as someone who wants to keep a journal. It's not a constantly ecstatic experience in the way that Annie Dillard can be or an idea journal in the vein of Walden, it's more like reading somebody fumbling through towards bigger ideas and willing to expose the joints and creaky bits in the process. There are moments of vision and transcendence, but also a lot of the petty crap that gets people down from day to day.

I like reading Sarton because she is so human. I feel like I miss her even though I never knew her, and reading her is like getting to know her-- in all her fulness as a flawed and talented human being.

I'd probably begin with A Journal of a Solitude, as I think it's the more complete work, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this as a follow-up.

May Sarton is a journal expert. If you're a writer of journals, you can learn much for her books. She writes them with thoughts of publishing so the mundane moves quickly along. (I read in short bursts.)
  • Gravelblade
A favorite! For those familiar with the writings of May Sarton; and, for those unfamiliar with her - I recommend this book. If you want to "feel" the sea.
As with all I’ve read (Plant Dreaming Deep, I Knew a Phoenix, Journal of a Solitude), Sarton’s capture and rendering of emotional states is clear and vivid. She writes nature, weather, landscape, like no other.
