me as her.

Halloween 2005

"I drank to drown my pain, but the damned pain learned how to swim, and now I am overwhelmed by this decent and good behavior." - Frida Kahlo

oh, this is so awesome. you're a great Frida.

i wish i could be Frida. but i so lack something. the hair? did you see the whole frida-themed spread in the vogue knitting knit 1 summer art issue?


find it if you can. it's great. i need to dig mine back out and make something frida-inspired.

so now i wonder how many frida-inspired posts there are out there? i searched for rebozos in mexico when i went because of her, and mentioned that in a post of mine about shawls: http://potlikker.typepad.com/bekka/2006/04/_where_does_my_.html

this picture rocks! love it.

when i had my long hair (just cut it...11 inches, recently-) some of my friends would call me frida because of the way i always tied it back. this picture makes me miss my hair!

Wow! You are so The embodiment of her in this photo! Such a Goddess! Both of you. I see her as a definate Goddess in our Collective Unconscious. She has become part of our feminine archetypal memory.. I could go on and on about her...and you you you look gorgeous.
