"And now it's all gone like so much of that life that I saw a little bit of when I was a kid. A life in which people made do, and made their own, and lived off the land. They were independent on that account and lived between the ground and God. And you know, it's lost not only to this world, but also lost to memory, because I can't bring it back, even in words. My memory is faulty, as everyone's is. And I think back to that life that's gone, and those people and I think about it as the olden days, the good old days when life was simple.

And it's not true. It's a terrible disservice to them. Life was simple for me then because I was a child, and my happiness was looked after by the other people, but it was not simple for the others, never."
