Viva Frida!

It is not so secret that I love Frida Kahlo. It was not just her artistry that captivates me, but it was her unapologetic living. Her life was no authentic and because of her candid nature, she was able to open our eyes to her innermost feelings. I strive to do this not only in my music, but in my everyday walk. It is hard to not use others as a measuring stick, to not conform or shrink to make others more comfortable (in the words of Mandela). The beauty of it all is that her life shows us that it is not easy, but that it is worth in, both in the quality of life and in the legacy left. Viva Frida!
