SIMONE DE BEAUVOIR; La Femme Rompue | 1967 ~ "My overflowing leisure handed me the world and at the same time prevented me from seeing it. Just as the sun, filtering through the closed venetian blinds on a hot afternoon, makes the whole magnificence of summer blaze in my mind; whereas if I face its direct harsh glare it blinds me”.

(I love this picture, I love her wrinkles, each one of them reminds me she put her entire life and every single cell of her body into her wrintings. And we are lucky she left us all those pages.)
