Diary Post: Outliving Frida

Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907 and died on July 13. 1954.  She was 47 years and one week old.  Her death, though listed as pulmonary embolism, has been widely assumed to have been a suicide.  Her final words in her journal are:
“Espero alegre la salida- y espero no volver jamas.”
(I hope the exit is joyful and I hope never to return.)
I turned 47 on February 11, 2006.  I have outlived Frida by 10 days.
