  • Hundreds of years of pilgrims seeking. I'm in Italy, visiting churches small and large. This one was set at the top of "Castle's Walk" and built in the 17th century. .

  • I saw this painting for the first time when I was in middle school. It scared me. Not because the image itself was scary, but because it was the first time I had seen a self-portrait of a woman. Up to that point I had only seen women perfected in art, put on a pedestal, idealized. Frida Kahlo had the audacity to paint herself, just as she was- flawed, broken, suffering. She validated her pain by making it worthy of the canvas. .
