This time I bent the rules a little and chose a passage from the diary of writer (and poet) Anaïs Nin, who was famously involved in a love triangle with Henry Miller and his wife June.
I liked this passage not only for the beauty of the language, but also because it captured a specific, fleeting emotion we all know so well - being overwhelmed by beauty.
Here's the passage if you'd like to read along
