Purple Postcards from Anais Nin

Anais & I spoke of these purple postcards as "snowflakes" in the blizzard of our correspondence

  1. I love the analogy of snowflakes. How supportive and generous Anais was, and how wonderful it must have been to have had such a lasting relationship with her. I've read some of the letters Anais wrote you in her Diary 7, and they seem to be microcosms of her high level of thinking and feeling. Such treasures. Thanks for sharing some of them with us.

  2. Paul-
    Thank you. You are doing such a wonderful job of keeping the living legacy of Anais Nin. I know that she wanted us all to remember her and that she came to believe that her work would endure...she also was profoundly aware of the fact that it would require the dedication which you and others bring to her work in order to insure this outcome.

  3. It just now "dawned on me" - I have not even read Diary 7 and did not know there were any letters to me in it! LOL
