Quotation of the Week: Anais Nin

I can’t recall when/where I discovered this quotation, but it is one that has stayed with me.

“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.”

–Anaïs Nin

(Of course, in an ideal world, a translator would be credited.)

    This quote gets to the heart of writing. It's a great one, which I'm going to save to use on my blog sometime. I believe we write to make sense of our past and present.

    Happy New Year!
