Meanwhile in my head, I'm undergoing open-heart surgery. - Anne Sexton.
1072"A little while ago, not much more than a few days ago, I was a child who went about in a world of colours, of hard and tangible forms. Everything was mysterious and something was hidden. Guessing what it was, was a game for me. If you knew how horrible it is to know suddenly, as if a bolt of lightning elucidated the earth. Now I live in a painful planet, transparent as ice, but it is as if I learned everything at once in seconds. I became old in instants and everything today is bland and lucid. I know that nothing lies behind. If there was something, I would see it." - Frida Kahlo,The Diary Of Frida Kahlo: An Intimate Self-Portrait
