ANAIS NIN ~ ARE WE DEAD OR ALIVE?

in The words that make sense... brilliant writings by writers... by

“You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken.”
― Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

DORA MAAR – PICASSO’S MUSE

A constant influence in Picasso’s life was the painter Dora Maar, with whom he had a parallel relationship (the closest was in 1930’s). She featured as his Muse in most of his Abstract Works and was responsible for documenting his most famous work “Guernica.” After the liberation of France, Pablo Picasso fell in love with a French art student, Francois Gilot.
Twenty-six years younger than Picasso, Maar was close to the surrealists. Her face and hands fascinated not only Picasso but also the photographer Man Ray, who took her picture several times.

When Picasso abandoned Maar for another woman in 1945, she had a nervous breakdown and became a recluse.
