todd alexander & anais nin

work by todd alexander

"there were always in me, two women at least,
one woman desperate and bewildered,
who felt she was drowning and another who
would leap into a scene, as upon a stage,
conceal her true emotions because they
were weaknesses, helplessness, despair,
and present to the world only a smile,
an eagerness, curiosity, enthusiasm, interest."

-anais nin

two favorites

That's a great quote and perhaps it reflects the essence of Anais Nin. We have a blog, which is updated frequently. Hope you can visit sometime soon! --Paul Herron

Gosh, my sister! I wonder for how many of us this would stand as anthem?
