Anais Nin

We've found a place to live - pics to follow soon as we're in! Yay! I can't wait till its home.

 I've just made a discovery - Anais Nin  - *heart melts*  I adore her.  But this quote particularly is just so stirring, churns me right up inside, because its the reflection of every dark thought I've had about my own womanhood just brought to very startling life.  I love it.

“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, f**ked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding.” ~ Anais Nin
