H.D.'s Bethlehem, PA

"We are subtropic, a town in Pennsylvania, on the map's parallel, I believe, south of Rome. Winters are cold, summer are hot, so we have the temperament of Nordics and of southerners both, harmoniously blended and altering key or vibration in strict accordance with the seasons' rules -- or not, as may be."

H.D. writing about her hometown, Bethlehem, PA, where she lived as a child before her family moved to Philadelphia. From a wonderful little book, Tribute to Freud (1956), pp. 27-29.
