(A page of Violet’s diary)
When Amelia left this morning, I suddenly felt so alone. She and Harry are flying to L.A. this afternoon as he is looking at some property. I think Harry has plans of moving to this country. Why he seems to favor L.A. over NYC is something that still escapes me.
I’m really glad that I am going away to the house in the Hamptons this weekend. It could not have come at a better time. Spending time with Friday who I met last Wednesday and Olivia is actually the only thing I’m looking forward to... considering everything that is happening in my life. Jake and Amelia being so many miles away from NYC is really making me feel a bit lonely. And this thing with dad… it’s DRIVING ME NUTS!!! I don’t want to think about it anymore. My head is currently a horrible place to be.
I need some time to clear my head. I need to escape. I need some assurance that my world will not fall apart. Hamptons is a good place to forget just for a while. I know the peace and quiet will calm me and the sea has always helped me dealt with things. I cannot wait to get away… to escape.
So for this weekend, I’ll forget everything I know and just give away all my troubles to the sea.
