As she struggled to understand the war and its impact on the world around her, Staebler also grappled with a “constant war” within herself (January 26, 1946). “I grasp at things that prevent me from writing and yet am depressed because I fail to write,” she observed January 26, 1946. “But I have these other responsibilities—Mother, Cdn [Canadian] Club, Library Board.

All thro’ September I sat around afraid of living—afraid to think, afraid to talk, afraid to do anything, thinking always of myself and my personality, afraid I’ll lose it.
