Lust For Life – Frida Kahlo

Born: July 6, 1907 – Coyoacan, Mexico City, Mexico

Died: July 13, 1954 – Mexico City, Mexico

“I’ve done my paintings well… and they have a message of pain in them, but I think they’ll interest a few people. They’re not revolutionary, so why do I keep on believing they’re combative?”

Frida

by Heartafire

In the portrait

a shawl is draped

over her shoulders.

Terracotta lips

are set in granite.

Her eyes are the

color of the earth,

they scream the

anguish of the world.

Her image is imprinted

on cheap tapestry

hung from nails

on a farmhouse wall.

She is captured by the

hand of a woman uprising.

She is proud,

she is Mexico.

The Magic Of A Smile ! / The Beauty Of A Person.

Do People believe in the magic of a smile ?

With a smile a person can overcome sadness.

A person can overcome worries with patience.

With silence a person can overcome troubles.

With beautiful words a person can gain new friends.

The beauty of a person is not in what he posses ,

Or in his accomplishment ,but in what he gives the others.

Miss Marie Studholme [1875-1930], a popular Edwardian performer, played the title role in a 1905 production of the musical comedy Lady Madcap. The music was by Paul Rubens who wrote the lyrics with Percy Greenbank, while the book was written by Nathaniel Newnham-Davis, The show had originally opened at the Prince of Wales Theatre in 1904 before touring the provinces. The tale is a classic of its time with the daughter of an Earl holding a ball at her father’s castle without, of course, telling him. Once she decides to pose as her maid, mayhem ensues.

Born Caroline Maria Lupton in Bradford, Marie Studholme made her debut at the Lyric Theatre in London during the late 19th century although her later career would show that she was particularly popular with provincial audiences. It is said that she charged sixpence for autographs so she could donate the money to theatrical and animal charities, a practice I think should be introduced across the board today.

She apparently took Jujitsu lessons and invented an early form of air conditioning by blowing air from an electric fan over iced water. One 21st century commentator has referred to her as the ‘original Spice Girl’. No comment!

Miss Marie Studholme retired in 1915 but not before rounding off her career by performing at the opening of the Alhambra music hall in her home town the previous year.

#In the Shadows of Men

img_4139.jpg?w=150

How many times did I feel the ravages of divorce and its painful flaming burns? How often have I thought that marriage under the shadow of one man is more merciful? And yet, inhaling the air of freedom is different. Feeling that I’d been freed from the prison I used to share with him was, by itself, an achievement. I was breathing again.

All I wanted was to take a fresh breath. I needed that sigh of relief.

The divorce made me see houses through its windows. Peering into homes from the outside revealed something different about the people inside—how we live inside our homes in double standards and lies.

What I have seen of the man’s world makes me feel as though the tragedy of my marriage was nothing but normal. I came to realize that betrayal may be a fundamental part of society. I will not place the blame entirely on the man. Relationships always require two, and behind every cheating married man is a woman partner. This was among the most terrible things, I realized—that the other woman was not necessarily unmarried, widowed, or divorced. The other woman was most likely a married woman..
