Letter to Frida Kahlo.

Querida Frida,

This letter is to let you know that you're in my thoughts often. I am a pretty positive person, (thank God), but sometimes I find myself overwhelmed by all my responsibilities. When I reach those moments where I need extra support from my little special sources, you always come to mind.

I think about your broken dream of becoming a Mother and about your physical pain and about your difficult marriage. You had a pretty tough life mi amiga, but still, you were able to channel your amazing energy through your art. This has been a mayor lesson to me. 

Whenever I feel under the pressure of life I try to sit for a minute or two and create something with my hands. This has always been my way to turn all my concerns into something meaningful and positive. Thank you so much for the lesson.

I just want to let you know that you were an amazing woman. I hope that one day, if we ever get to meet in person up there, we can spend some time talking and sharing experiences. I also hope that you can cook one of your delicious Mexican dishes. Yay!! I will bring the desert, something made my myself.

I send you a big hug and lots of love!

Elsita :)
