When you’re in love, you’re capable of learning everything and knowing things you had never dared even to think, because love is the key to understanding of all the the mysteries.”

"She had long ago lost track of all the days,
and it really didn't matter because one was like another.
There were no nights to separate them because she never slept anymore

"I could never pretend something I didn't feel. I could never make love if I didn't love. And if I loved, I could no more hide the fact than change the color of my eyes."

'Sometimes during the night, my dreams will take me back to the sad place.
So I have to wake up, and forgive us all over again.'

“My first vision of earth was water veiled.  I am of the race of men and women who see all things through this curtain of sea and my eyes are the color of water.  I looked with chameleon eyes upon the changing face of the world, looked with anonymous vision upon my uncompleted self.  I remember my first birth in water.” 
— Anaïs Nin, House of Incest

"The girl is blue.  She's wearing her gown and dissipating into the night sky.  She is sad because she has forgotten what it's like to be young at heart.  Grey clouds spiral around her, cocooning her on all sides.  She is going off to be alone, to play, to imagine herself dwelling within the inner workings of her mind.  Living within the limitless confines of her own personal haven, her sanctuary, her safe place.  She needs to remember."

I see it in her
I hear it in her
I feel it in her
I know it's in her
She's magic
