Happy Bday Frida


*********


Today .... today Frida was born! 

"I don’t give a shit what the world thinks. I was born a bitch, I was born a painter, I was born fucked. But I was happy in my way. You did not understand what I am. I am love. I am pleasure, I am essence, I am an idiot, I am an alcoholic, I am tenacious. I am; simply I am…You are a shit." - 
— Frida Kahlo, from an unsent letter to Diego Rivera.
.....................................

“Me importa una mierda lo que piense el mundo. Yo nací puta, yo nací pintora, yo nací jodida. Pero fui feliz en mi camino. Tu no entiendes lo que soy. Yo soy amor, soy placer, soy esencia, soy una idiota, soy una alcohólica, soy tenaz. Yo soy, simplemente soy… Eres una mierda.”
— Frida Kahlo, en una carta nunca entregada a Diego Rivera.
