What the Water Gave Me contains fifty-two poems in the voice of the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. Some of the poems are close interpretations of Kahlo's work, while others are parallels or version homages where Petit draws on her experience as a visual artist to create alternative 'paintings' with words. More than just a verse biography, this collection explores how Kahlo transformed trauma into art after the artist's near-fatal bus accident. Petit, with her vivid style, her feel for nature and her understanding of pain and redemption, fully inhabits Kahlo's world. Each poem is an evocation of 'how art works on the pain spectrum', laced with splashes of ferocious colour. 'Their apparent shared sensibility makes the ventriloquism of these poems entirely unforced, and while Kahlo's voice is subtly distinguished from Petit's own, both women have a way of taking painful, private experiences and transmuting them, through imagery, into something that has the power of folklore. They capture the unsettling spirit of Frida Kahlo and her work perfectly.' Poetry London 'No other British poet I am aware of can match the powerful mythic imagination of Pascale Petit.'

Behind Frida Kahlo’s portraits, lies the story of both her life and work. It is precisely this combination that draws the reader in. Frida’s work is a record of her life, and rarely can we learn so much about an artist from what she records inside the picture frame. Frida Kahlo truly is Mexico’s gift to the history of art. She was just eighteen years old when a terrible bus accident changed her life forever, leaving her handicapped and burdened with constant physical pain. But her explosive character, raw determination and hard work helped to shape her artistic talent. And although he was an obsessive womanizer, the great painter Diego Rivera was by her side. She won him over with her charm, talent and intelligence, and Kahlo learnt to lean on the success of her companion in order to explore the world, thus creating her own legacy whilst finding herself surrounded by a close-knit group of friends. Her personal life was turbulent, as she frequently left her relationship with Diego to one side whilst she cultivated her own bisexual relationships. Despite this, Frida and Diego managed to save their frayed relationship. The story and the paintings that Frida left us display a courageous account of a woman constantly on a search of self discovery.

Lyrics and never-before-seen poetry and sketches from the iconic musician of Florence and the Machine Songs can be incredibly prophetic, like subconscious warnings or messages to myself, but I often don't know what I'm trying to say till years later. Or a prediction comes true and I couldn't do anything to stop it, so it seems like a kind of useless magic.

Getting Hit By a Train Isn t All Bad

My life had been in a downward spiral for quite some time, even before my encounter with that train. How ironic is it that while that while somewhere along the line I got off track, a train accident helped me to get back on track! Obviously, I would like everyone who reads this to be entertained, but the message of 'hope, faith, and perseverance' was my main motivation in writing this book. There are so many people today that seem to have given up on their hopes and dreams for any number of reasons. Whether hope was lost due to poor choices (like me), handi-cap (like me), or any other reason (probably like me) you need to get over it, and not let past losses keep you from future gains!

To most people, one’s mother is the first person they ever form a lifelong bond with. She is the source of life and nourishment, love and compassion, and the person who provides the foundation for an individual’s worldview and core values. Author and veteran sociologist Velma Benson-Wilson pays tribute to her mother, a remarkable woman born Fannie Bradley, through a book titled, What’s In The Water? Imagine a mother of seventeen living children, all single births and the majority born during the tumultuous times of the 1950s and 60s in rural Mississippi. How did she balance and cope with their spiritual, educational, financial and overall upbringing to insure that all became productive members of this society? Fannie Bradley had tenacious faith, resilience, and perseverance in overcoming adversities and pain that would have made most an indignant human being. Fannie's mother was mentally retarded; she had no stable father figure or family, and an elementary education. Although she only lived to be 57 years of age, Fannie's legacy of love and parental principles are indelible in each of her living seventeen offspring. Book Event: I have a book signing scheduled for Saturday, February 11, 2012 form 11:00 a.m. to 12 noon at Jackson Madison County Library, Jackson, Tennessee.

This richly illustrated exploration of the sources of Frida Kahlo's inspiration in Mexico's popular arts and folk traditions draws illuminating connections between Kahlo's highly personal creations and the aesthetic traditions that infused her early years: votive paintings, nineteenth-century studio photography (including that of her father Guillermo Kahlo), Catholic iconography, revolutionary corridos and the variegated productions of anonymous craftsmen. Readers will recognize Kahlo's centered parts and moustaches in Jose Maria Estrada's portraits and in anonymous Mexican Catholic paintings. They will see her cutaway, heart-on-sleeve self-portraits, in Jose Maria Velasco's nature studies and butterfly taxonomies. And everywhere they will find the tracks of Kahlo's life, particularly the accident that marred her teen years and the marriage that she described as the second major accident of her life--a passionate union with Mexican mural painter Diego Rivera, of which it has been said that "Each regarded the other as Mexico's greatest painter." Kahlo may or may not have been a Surrealist, and she may or may not have been an early variety of feminist artist or have had ideas about what later became feminism, but there is no denying that she is a star. The realist and Symbolist work whose heritage this book traces is known around the world. Texts by Nadia Ugalde and Juan Coronel Rivera also examine related issues such as the influence of Positivism on Frida's education and the roots of her "indigenist" outlook.
