Every woman should read Anais Nin...

"How wrong is it for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than to create it herself."  Anais Nin

Bon anniversaire Anais.

French-born Cubana writer and diarist would have been 110 years old today and its worth commemorating this fierce woman's life. The amazing site, Brain Pickings, has been writing about Nin's works on love, creativity, and life.  She started a diary at 10 while living in Cuba and wrote in French so no one in her family would understand and therefore violate her privacy. 

She leaves an unmatched legacy of journals -- taking us through every stage in a woman's life -- from her first menstruation, to her last breath. Inspiring. Inspired.
