Age does not protect you from love. But love, to some extent, protects you from age.
Anais NinAnais Nin 1971It’s the birthday of Ana├»s Nin (books by this author), born in Neuilly, France (1903), the daughter of a Spanish composer and Danish-Cuban classically trained singer. She studied psychoanalysis with Otto Rank, and was a patient of Carl Jung at one time. She wrote in literary obscurity for most of her life, until her diaries began to be published in 1966. She began writing them at age 11 and continued for more than 60 years, and they include accounts of her passionate love affair with Henry Miller in Paris. (The Writer’s Almanac)

She wrote, “We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” And, “I write emotional algebra.”
