Beautiful - and very wise - words to start the week, courtesy of Anais Nin. (The second one has a special place on my bedroom wall - it's one of my all-time favorites.)


I hope you're all enjoying this beautiful Monday - it's short-sleeve weather here in Brooklyn! And thank you again for your incredibly kind words on Friday - I'm so happy to be sharing personal writing here on the blog at long last!

Image sources unknown. Please share if you know the artists - I'd love to be able to give proper credit!

Ahhh, the second one really resonates with me. It feels that now more than ever, wit the internets, it is easy to get lost in the lives that others are living. I love this reminder that we need to create our own world.

I love Anais Nin! I recently purchased two volumes from her collection of journals from Bart's Books in Ojai. They're these old, slightly yellow and worn copies from the 1970s. I'm pretty stoked about them. She's so intriguing to me, and her work is filled with so many excellent little quotes like the ones above!
