"No Estoy Enferma." The title means "I am not sick."

This is a really creative animation of one of Frida Kahlo's most famous (among the chronically ill) self portraits, The Broken Column.  The originals are on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BI3ug5_jSuB/?taken-by=lacejadefridaoficial and Tumblr https://www.tumblr.com/reblog/148668368448/oJ9mRBlb.  So click the play arrow and if you don't understand any Spanish I will put the translation at the bottom of this picture for you.

No cheating!  Watch the animation first!

No cheating!  Really.



The animation translates as:  "I am broken but I am happy to live while I can paint."  Or something to that effect.

I'd like to know more about the lacejadefrida.com artist, but the site is all about Frida.

I've been dealing with these types of problems in my immediate family for almost exactly three years now.  Last week the problem suddenly got much worse.  More on that soon.
