Dear Marianne,

Warmest thanks for your lovely letter which was a great joy.

I am glad you weren’t bored with me.

It was a joy to be together with you for a while. . . .

Mama’s death has left a gap for me that cannot be filled.

So it is good if you have something you want to carry out and can turn to when the emptiness spreads about you too

The stone I am working on gives me inner stability with its hardness and permanence and its meaning
governs my thoughts. ~Carl Jung to his daughter, Letters Vol. II, Page 316.
