It’s strange how difficult and frightening it can be to write words on paper. But it really is. I can barely stand to do it. Here is Anaïs Nin:
It is in the moments of emotional crisis that human beings reveal themselves most accurately. … The heightened moments … are the moments of revelation. It is the moment when the real self rises to the surface, shatters its false roles, erupts and assumes reality and identity. The fiery moments of passionate experience are the moments of wholeness and totality of the personality.
