Je me souviens

Tonight, I am going through some old notes from a trip to Santiago, Chile.

It was January of 2009. I stole a couple of hours from my busy schedule to visit an exhibit called “Frida y Diego: Vidas Compartidas” at La Moneda Cultural Center. Frida Kahlo’s portrait of Alicia Galant pulled me in and wouldn’t let go. I remember I sat on a bench in the dark cool exhibition space and spent a long time taking in the painting.

Something about this exquisite, calmly beautiful woman caresses my memory to this day.
