"Melancholia 1989" by Fernando Botero
Fernando and I are usually on the same page but not this time. Unless melancholia in Spanish translates to cross-dressing, I’m not sure what my pal is saying. Where’s the sadness? Cross-dressing, though frivolous, is a fun and healthy pursuit – not sad in anyway. I occasionally indulge myself, and find it quite joyful and liberating. The only melancholies I see in this painting are perhaps the weak accessories. I might have gone hoop earrings and high heels. Tomorrow: serious sadness leading to a happy ending.
