Thought for the Day

“I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me. His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot. I don’t mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically; but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated. I don’t mind being told to stand on my own feet, not to cling, be all that I am capable of doing, but I am going to be pursued, fucked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding.”
― Anaïs Nin

      i know, she was pretty amazing. i first read her when i was too young to have a clue about it all, and even now when i try to read her, sometimes she exhausts me with her ~ i don’t know. Her ~ i’ll just say her way of relating to the world and herself, because i don’t have an adjective or a stream of adjectives to describe it.
