Understanding my Dyslexia. A Personal Story.

I never knew why I didn’t know my right from my left or why I had to use an eraser far more often than everyone else around me.  This is a personal story about finding out, accepting  and understanding my learning disability.

Marilyn Monroe had Sex Appeal, but what if I told you she was Made of Kisses?

Marilyn Monroe had Sex Appeal, but what if I told you she was Made of Kisses?How fitting would that be? And it’s true! Well, sort of. . .

As an art lover, I love to see something done out of the box. I was so inspired when I saw this kissed portrait, of Marilyn Monroe—It is both the subject and the method together that made this art-work stand out as exceptional to me.

We probably can all agree that a good kiss can blow one’s mind, but what is it about a kiss that makes it so special?

When I think about what makes a phenomenal kiss, a lot of thoughts come to mind. I think about the fervor, sensuality and the feel of intent behind the kiss.

And there are so many different types of kisses- friendly pecks on the cheek to the deeply passionate French kiss.

In many ways kisses can be much more personal than even sex, and I think Marilyn would have agreed with that:

“The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space.” — Marilyn Monroe

I have a friend of mine, now divorced, who described kissing her ex-husband as, “As passionate as kissing a piece of cardboard.” No one would possibly care to do that, right? Where would the excitement in that be?

Well, I have actually found an artist who can make kissing a piece of paper with intent, touching to one’s spirit.

Her name is Alexis Fraser and she actually kissed a portrait of Marilyn Monroe over a four day period using just two tubes of lipstick.  I was astonished when I first saw this, thinking that it couldn’t be real, but it is!

I think the subject matter of such a sensual person being kissed into creation is beyond incredible! This is the kind of incredible that blows my mind!

It’s already impressive when an artist uses a brush to paint something wonderful, but I this is some altogether kind of talent. I love Alexis’s creativity and I bet you will feel the same after watching her in action and seeing the result. . .
