“Writers do not live one life, they live two. There is the living and then there is the writing. There is the second tasting, the delayed reaction.” Anaïs Nin
In my case this morning, there was the first tasting of the coffee so there would not be too much of a delayed reaction for the writing. Not sure if that second tasting, the writing life, is kicking in yet though.

“The possession of knowledge does not kill the sense of wonder and mystery. There is always more mystery.” Anaïs Nin
In fact I would say there is knowledge as well as wonder and mystery existing together on this bookshelf.

“I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.” Anaïs Nin
A little pillow talk with Anaïs Nin seemed appropriate for wine Wednesday and this quote. When ordinary life shackles me, I escape to bed with a good book and a glass of wine or to my writer created life / world. Anaïs Nin’s way, however, does sound a bit more exciting. Maybe I’m getting too old.
On a side note, when I work with quotes, ones from Anaïs Nin, through the years, have often stood out to me. In this picture, however, is a card that I have used for many years as a bookmark. Guys may notice it first and understand. While liking Ms. Nin’s quotes and my bookmark for ages, it was only some time ago that I found out the card is actually the book cover for the book, ‘Delta of Venus’ written by, of course, Anaïs Nin. Coincidence, I think not.
Side note number two; I used the book, ‘Paris’ by Edward Rutherford because it was my closest tie in to where Anaïs Nin was born. She was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine (and, to be best of my knowledge, no one has written a book named, Neuilly-sur-Seine), which touches Paris to the west and is one of my favourite places. Coincidence number two, I think not.
Side note number three and, I promise, last one. This is more of an sudden inspiration though. Currently I’m working on a prequel to my book, Ralph and the Girl From Mayfair Towers. I also have planned a sequel. Having lived near Paris and vacationed there from Canada many times, however, the sequel is planned to take place in Paris. Maybe it could be Ralph and the Girl From Neuilly-sur-Seine. Hmm.

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” Anaïs Nin
No extra courage from me to continue on with a week of Anaïs Nin quotes, especially when it’s a profound one like this.
Anais Nin quote image, June 22nd
“I believe one writes because one has to create a world in which one can live.” Anaïs Nin
Someone, however, had an Anaïs Nin thought whilst living in one of those created worlds.

Astral Projection Novel: Ralph and the Girl From Mayfair Towers
Scot Fin novel is an astral adventure.
Ralph is a traveler. He has his own plane … or so he thought.
Astral traveler Ralph didn’t really think about whether the astral plane was his own until the girl from Mayfair Towers approached him with her mystery. He told me his story. Ralph explained that he thought this would be a simple investigation, perhaps impressing the lovely girl from Mayfair Towers, by using his secret mystic gift.
An experienced and knowledgeable astral adversary, however, transformed this simple investigation. Unlike this adversary, Chong, Ralph was essentially a novice in other dimensions. Now, beyond the investigation, Ralph was involved in a paranormal struggle …
