"As long as there are postmen, life will have zest."

Memo from Moira, Valerie and William James:
After nine years we are no longer able to answer basic questions. When
the site started, the web was in it's infancy. We felt a responsibility
to develop the site in a fashion that it could be a timeless "start"
to discovering a side of Anais not always found in her biographies. The
web site has been featured in MAC-User and our web site URL appeared in
a story on saving Nin's home in Figaro.We also treasure the wonderful
comments people have made about the site. Now there is no excuse for not
doing your own research on line, taking the time to go through this site,
or visiting others. We don't give authorizations, we don't tell you how
to find quotes and we don't do homework. If you wish to contact Mr. Pole
contact the Foundation.
M. Collins Griffin is (still) working
on her memory of Nin and until that is finished she is in a Greta Garboesque
e-mail mode. You won't hear from her until she's finished writing HER
memory! Please write her at PO Box 863 Beverly Shores Indiana 46301. She's
always charmed by real letters, and is planning to put her letters from
Anais up as part of her memory. As soon as Moira is finished, this message
will mysteriously disappear and she'll be back in touch with her wireless
laptop and Palm. Being a momentum investor in tech, the deep financial
pockets she had to subsidize this site have disappeared. She's gone back
to one of the gifts Anais taught her, writing in her diary. As Gertrude
Stein said " A diary means yes, indeed" and of course preparing
herself for the next bull run!
We would like to point out that everything on this site had to receive
permission in terms of copyright
from Anais Nin's estate. We would encourage everyone to honor her copyrights.
We would encourage everyone to buy her books. She is alive in all our
hearts from the power of her beautiful words. As E. M. Forrester wrote,
"Only connect." Our connection began with Celebration.
