On left page next to Sunday, January 1st entry is a poem handwritten in blue pen by Barry.

"Art is utterly inexplicable.

Art is utterly inexplicable.
It is a force that
Wells forth,
Without apparant
Logic or reason.
within the human being,
Soul, heart, brain
or whatever
Thank god, (or whomever)
Art remains
Inexplicable.
Aha-
I can now
get on with the job."
