June 2, 1938
J. told her he dreamt they went fishing last night.
It’s odd because she was woken up several times by his shouts. She wondered if he had a fever, he was sweating. It’s what’s happening downtown.
She wants to be sympathetic. She is sympathetic. But she can only dream of next Thursday – her photography lesson with A. What type of camera will she get to use? Will they go outside or, even better, inside the darkroom? — No she doubts that, it would be too soon. She can’t even hold the camera yet.
The whistle of the kettle breaks her reverie. She feels a bit traitorous and smug at the same time. She makes J.’s tea and really tries to pay attention to what he is saying.
