Memory work

"This is what I have decided to do with my life just now. I will do this work of transformed and even distorted memory and will lead this life, the one I am leading today. Every morning the blue clock and the crocheted bedspread with its pink and blue and gray squares and diamonds. How nice it is - this production of a broken old woman in a squalid nursing home."

Elizabeth Hardwick, Sleepless Nights, Virago, London 1980, p.3
