Spread 214 – “Amor Calor Dolor” July 8, 2013Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
Last night I was watching the movie Frida while I was journaling. That’s the movie depicting Frida kahlo’s life story. I watched it a couple of times before, but this time it was different, more revealing about myself than about Frida. It was that way because of my journaling. It became a conduit to a potent, emotionally charged, and integrative journaling experience. I never felt so raw, unvarnished while journaling. It was soooo good. It made me process rich emotions, process the fragility of human bonds, relationships between love and pain. It made me make peace with the fragility of it all at least while I was journaling. It made me realize that I constantly make choices between withdrawing and re-entering. “Madera, Citlali, Amor, Calor, Dolor, Rumor, Humor, Dador, Amor”–Words found on one of Frida’s visual journal pages meaning: Wood, Citlali (Star), Love, Warmth, Pain, Rumor, Humor, Bringer, Love.
