About the painting, Anais & Henry, Anfinson shares: "Henry Miller is focused on the lady in red dress, a combination of Anne Tammel and Anais Nin...Passion corners us, and yet we yearn to be there...The balcony, the space of their relationship, is surrounded by beauty and perils...Miller is seated...with the silk red journal between them, "and red silk journals are covered in sweat and secrets..." Water, sky, and land allow for the endless waves, sky, and travel, and also represent the emotions, conscious, and unconsciousness of our lives..."
~ Anders Dahlgren, Mediterranean Poetry
Endless: A Literate Passion
Anais Nin to Henry Miller
My search for you is endless…
like a wife, an insatiable wife. A lover
of silk...and words...and your breath.
You taunt me; a lost baby rests
at the tip of my torture. Your torment
travels through me as I travel
morning trains, and cafes--
Paris, and ships to Spain—and then
America…where I will fight
not to remember your name.
An endless list of lovers, knowing
only my wholeness, my silhouette
parfaite. If they knew--if they were
seized by you—seized
by your words, fighting
to forget the supreme
And Hugh waits, an endless trail
of dull husbandry; I wait
an endless amount of time,
until our lives
have become dust
and the red silk journals
