My lovely Anais..........

It was a bizarre bipolar weather day here in Seattle with sunshine one minute and hail the next. In a way I thought it was very feminine...its a very sensual way the clouds roll in from off the horizon darkening everything to a greenish sepia glow...perfect for a little reading. Inspired by the weather I pulled out an old favorite Delta of Venus,,,Julien is still in France so I don't feel too guilty bringing it out {shhhhhh!!!} and even though I must have read everything Anais Nin has ever written at least twice, for some reason her quotes were jumping out at me coming to life....I could almost hear her gracefully accented purr as she told me the exact words I had needed to hear. I won't bore you with too much detail but roll these pretties around in your mind for a little...It was almost like a soothing balm for me, the older sister sharing her wisdom. I'm sure you can dig ;-)

"We don't see things as they are, we see things as we are." Anais Nin

"I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a women." Anais Nin 

"There came a time where the risk to remain tight in the bud, was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." Anais Nin
