Slept until 10:00—up & feel refreshed & with renewed faith in my work. Day spent in studio going over old diaries (1912-1914-1915)— and looking at some of my 1915 notes for pictures. It is my task now to re-create and re-experience the rhapsodic impressions of life & nature I had then. I can do it.

Charles Burchfield, June 19, 1947
