Frida and Lewis

There's always a tiny fiesta that occurs in my insular sense of self-accomplishment whenever I finish a book - takes me forever!  And so I completed: "Frida: A Biography Of Frida Kahlo" This was indeed,  an "engrossing biography of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo" revealing "a woman of extreme magnetism and originality..." (Amazon)

I don't share Frida's view on things like religion or politics, but what a gutsy woman!  Got quite sad for me at the end with her declining health and her soul-searching renewed devotion to Communism.  There is always some nugget of inspiration though to be scooped up like scattered pinata treasures on the floor when reading about unique creatives such as Frida.  Have you read this book?  Have you seen the movie based on this book starring Salma Hayek?  Have you listened to the movie soundtrack?  (You would hear three "yes's" from me!) :)

Had to cleanse my "reading palate" afterwards with the colorful silliness of Lewis Carroll's "Into The Looking Glass". It's the followup to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, which I have read as well. Have you read these? I know, children's books, you say? I was very much entertained by the clever, non-sensical wordplay throughout.
