Il’ll probably insert pieces of pure, hard reality into the story I’m going to tell you. Does that sound okay?
You are at war with yourself, with the intellectual you.
I say, let the intellectual alone, the savant, the philosopher.
Enjoy life. Intoxicate yourself with life. Describe it. Do not comment on it, or draw false conclusions.
You have had your cerebral winter—your mental fervors. You were not happy. You are NOT happy.
I beg you, give up cerebration. You are in rebellion without knowing why.
– Anaïs Nin, from a letter to Henry Miller
