I had planned on having a more travel oriented weekend and now for different reasons, I'm going to be home based. So I'm cooking and doing art, catching up with family (I'm working on some issues that will most likely make enormous changes in my family geographically) and relaxing. A few months ago I was pretty sure that moving back to the East Coast was what I was doing next. Now that is being challenged. I'm stepping back and just waiting for indicators. I've always had them appear when I was approaching major decisions, so now it's paying attention, being open and my next step will come. In the mean time, I'm saying yes, keeping the door to art and relationship open and ready to step through.

I fell in love with Frida Kahlo's work long before Madonna or many people started making her popular again. I had been aware of her work having seen Diego Rivera's Detroit Industry Murals. When the movie "Frida" came out, I was one of the first in line to see it. There I fell in love with Lila Downs singing. Both are/were passionate women and I love their respective art. I had the opportunity to see Lila Downs in Stern Grove at a concert and had one of the most incredible experiences musically, I've ever had. She isn't afraid to take risks and her music shows it. If you ever get a chance to see her go. She embraces change, art and is an amazing human being. She is a role model in saying "Yes".

This picture I took in the Bay area of this woman, reminded me of those women. Passionate, colorful and having a good time.

Here's a wonderful video, incorporating Frida Kahlo's art and Lila Downs singing(one of my favorites of hers):
