I, too, love Frida. She has been an inspiration and my favorite painter since I was a little girl. Only two years ago I found we shared the same birthday--July 6th. This is the first I have heard of the cremation event. It is quite common for the corpse to sit up and move as the fire consumes them. I have seen this myself, as my father was a doctor at a state insane asylem and the patients were all cremated. I regularly went and watched these procedures--no wonder I am so wierd. What was my dad thinking of to let a young child watch these tings. He always said I had to learn what the world was like.
