The author resumes his white identity at the end of his project. But instead of relief, he feels strangely sad to leave the Negro world after having shared it so long. He feels almost as though he is fleeing from the Negroís pain and heartache.
Todayís jotting is a short and sharp description of the authorís emotions -- his acute nostalgia at leaving behind his Negro self. It is also a mirror of the authorís deep sincerity, as he honestly acknowledges that his re-entry into the white world, is in fact an escape from the Negro world, with all its constant fears and insecurities and painful trials and tribulations.
