D.H. Lawrence by Anais Nin

I am loving this book..first chapter(the approach to D.H. Lawrence's World) must quote..
"If a man loves life, and feels the sacredness and mystery of life, than he knows that life is full of
strange and subtle and even conflicting imperatives. And a wise man learns to recognize the imperatives as they arise--- or nearly so--- and to obey. But most men bruise themselves to death trying to fight and overcome their own, new, life-born needs, life's ever strange imperatives. The secret of all life is obedience: obedience to the urge that arises in the soul, the urge that is life itself, urging us to new gestures, new embraces, new emotions, new combinations, new creations."
these are some old photo's, from when I lived in Denver...I loved shooting into windows.

Shooting into windows is like obeying the urge that arises in your soul.

Good one.

I was completely unaware about the existence of this book. Must look it up on amazon.co.uk. Lovely post.

Greetings from London.

"Obedience... to the urge that is life itself..." Love it.

Thank you. Needed that.
