feet what do I need you for...

Frida by Nikolas Muray
To have vastness - in spirit and imagination, is what I admire and envy most in people. To have that will that just refuses to give up or die.. and oh such courage.. in body and soul! All of which she Frida Kahlo had.

Sensual, unapologetic, brave and bold - her work stirs in me a magical melancholy.. the kind I want to dwell in...
I don't have any `role models' but her's is a life and work that really does inspire me deeply. Everything about how she lived and was, is so brave and special.  One day, I shall in my own way do an ode to her... for now.. it's this..

'I paint self-portaits because I am so often alone, because I'm the person I know best.' - Frida Kahlo

Beautiful post! The quote.. had me staring at the screen.. wow. I can't relate more with you there.. the yearning, the hunger, the quest.. for vastness and freedom.. and for that flight to the moon and beyond! :) lovely!

Lovely post again Neha! I have long admired Frida....all she went through and her haunting beauty!!! its funny how the "unibrow" is looked at as something that needs to be "fixed" in today's world...just look at all the character it adds to her face! I sometimes wonder who really decids what is fashionable or not...we humans are a very funny species.
