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!
