Friday May 2

Home & Radio

To be alone in the house
to sleep alone in my rooms
is a trying experience.

When evening comes

life. I hear the dance
music on the radio, I would
so gladly dance to the sweet
tunes but whom with?

I would talk my heart out
to someone now but whom to?

My mother adds:

I'm sure you'd be interested to know that the photo was taken at Flamenbaum's resort Kerhonkson, N.Y. My memory was jogged by the car in the background. I believe my mother and I stayed up there for the week and Papa came on weekends. One time I was so happy to see him that I didn't even notice that he had shaved off his moustache.
