Story of My Life (C10)

How did Helen pass her time when she was not reading?

  • Helen's amusements, when she is not reading, are not very different from those of other young women
  • loves to be outside and to swim
  • enjoys canoeing, especially on moonlit nights, and her favorite pastime is sailing
  • speaks of her love for her "tree friends"
  • feels so close to them that she imagines she can hear their sap flow and see the sunshine on their leaves
