living la vida

The Last Painting of Frida Kahlo

Viva la Vida - “Live Life” is both the title of this artwork and the inscription on it. The reason for Kahlo’s renown in life can be attributed to the subtle detail of symbolism she placed in her works. She accomplished great things through her pain and, while tragic, it makes many people see her paintings and relate to them in more ways than one. A woman who would suffer both physical and emotional afflictions, transformed that into artistic symbolism on a canvas. She created countless paintings of the impacts in her life - such as her disability, to her heritage - right up until her death.

This painting of ripened fruit at its prime is fitting of the inscription placed upon it. Painted so shortly before she passed at the age of 47. She hoped (in her own words) that “the exit is joyful, and I hope never to return.”

Fluff for this Valentine day Tuesday

Summary: (Y/N) has received a love letter. The problem, she doesn’t know who sent it. The other problem, she is already in love with someone else


 

Within seconds you stole my attention
Skin so perfect, a golden complexion
More than beautiful girl, you’re a work of art
Oh, my, I cannot believe my eyes
Oh, my, pinch me, am I dreamin’, am I?
Oh, my, did you fall from the skies?

I can’t see your wings, but girl, you’re an angel
Oh, my, my angel
You’re so out of this world, you’re hiding your halo
Oh, oh, my angel
Oh, my, my angel
Won’t you be mine? My angel
I can’t see your wings, but girl, you’re an angel
Oh, my angel

Your heart melted once more when you read those words for what seemed the millionth time today.
“You are reading that thing again?” Caitlin asked
“Yeah” you sighed dreamfully “I can’t help it. Every time I use the phone I have, no, need to read it”
“It’s a shame you don’t know who sent it” she commented while sipping her coffee.
“I’m kind of bumped about it too. I mean, they could have written an initial or,  I don’t know, something at least!” You said exasperated.
Since the letter arrived on Valentines day, attached to a bouquet of flowers with no remitent, you had been thinking of who the person might be. However, no one seemed to fit in the description. And to be honest, you were a little bit scared to reveal the identity, since your heart already belonged to another person.
