Yesterday I snuck away with my Mother and dear friend Shari to see the FRIDA Exhibit in San Francisco. What a fabulous show!!! I have long admired her work for her use of symbols and how she transformed pure pain into astonishing art. It was thrilling to see her work in person, so intimate and detailed, and wonderful to see so many photos from her life ~ like peeking into a movie-reel.
About midway through the show I spotted the most delightful Mother and Daughter sitting in the middle of the room, each dressed in Frida style. They seemed to draw everyone's eyes towards them, in a loving sincere way. I walked up to them, intending to compliment their 'look' and thank them for being who they were, when suddenly the Mother said, " I know you! You are Ulla!!!" Then I realized, that Yes, I knew them too, fellow blogger Patrice and her delightful daughter Annie! We had never met in person, but knew one another from across cyberspace. Surely a Frida Synchronicity was at work here, magically drawing us together! I felt foolish having left my camera in the car, but sweet Annie offered me theirs along with some delicious Cheerios... Gratefully Patrice's photos mark my highlight and share their genuine smiles! Thank you Patrice and Annie for being you and making my day more special!!!
