Zelda

• Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the heart can hold.


Why do we spend years using up our bodies to nurture our minds with experience and find our minds turning then to our exhausted bodies for solace?





No one has to repeat her story for she is an icon and the Janus face of the 20's.

I love what she said about Hemingway "No one is THAT male"

Zelda wasn't always 'crazy' she was witty, unique, sexy, talented and a great muse.

She wanted most of all to be a dancer. A Prima - but...

Zelda didn't start ballet until she was in her early 20's. Any ballerina can tell you it is a lost cause if you don't start as a young child and learn the discipline of pain and practice. And Primas begin when they start to walk.

So much pain you can sometimes see blood on the cotton in your toe shoes - and for what? For the glimpse of heaven that sometimes comes so unexpectedly.


It's very expressive of myself. I just lump everything in a great heap which I have labeled "the past," and, having thus emptied this deep reservoir that was once myself, I am ready to continue.
