Life is so unfair as some sad news were revealed today and this came to mind, Viva la Vida as was inspired/painted by Frida Kahlo. For Frida, the meaning of Viva la Vida is all about a celebration of life, despite its sorrows and many troubles. An artist plagued by pain and illness throughout her short life, it is widely believed that Viva la Vida was Frida Kahlo's last painting, painted just days before she died ... "sensing that her time was near, Kahlo added the inscription "Viva la vida" on her death bed as her famous last words. It is indeed inspiring that, even with her own death looming near, Frida had the strength and boldness to escape pessimism even in a moment when darkness and morbidity would have been expected and even acceptable. Instead, Kahlo turned her watermelons into a symbol and celebration of life's fleeting simple pleasures...
and so I say to you Jose... Viva la Vida!

Don't stop trying to find me here amidst the chaos... it's blinding and sometimes I think I can't find my way out and I find myself wanting to give up. Tomorrow is another day and I hope to say, I will not give up on love today.
Thank you Sara for your beautiful words and music!

Finally, after a five year break new music by one of my favorite artists and this song hits home...
Fire That comes and stays fire On blood and veins fire I've only ever wanted fire In my chest In my mouth On my tongue In my mind And my soul So my lungs can breathe in fire
So need to breathe in fire!!
