I look at his eyes and wonder why she ever married that man. But I guess there's never any knowing why anyone loves anyone else.

That's funny, because I look in his eyes and more easily understand why she loved him.

Judy and I just agreed yesterday the term "crazy artists" may have been invented by these two people. And I'm with you on the eyes. They see.

Heck, crazy and artist go together like eggs and cheese.

What you wrote reminds me of that Leonard Cohen song about Janis Joplin. "You fixed yourself, you said Well, never mind, we are ugly but we have the music."
I just watched the movie "Frida" again the other day. Selma Hayak (sp?) did a damn fine job.
