It's fascinating to look back on our lives to see how our paths twisted and turned. At the time, it can seem as if our lives are stagnant, but with hindsight, the moments of stagnation can be viewed as important pauses in our personal development. For Frida, the hours, days, months, and years of recovery after the bus/trolley accident were unbearable at times. Reading her letters, we can feel her physical and emotional pain. Even when Miguel is submitting the photograph of Frida's portrait of him to Panorama, she is still in a plaster corset, yet, she needed this time to reflect, to muster her strong will, and to paint.
Now, I want to look up Panorama to see if Frida's painting was reproduced in it and if Diego Rivera's work was also featured. Let me know if you know anything about it.
