#DigitalNomad: Florida: Chapter Two

Success! A digital nomad life is possible for me!

The beauty of the Florida beaches have not stopped me from keeping up with my deadlines. It helped that I could look out the window to the waves rolling up onto the sand… I could almost feel the water on my toes.

Of course, I’ve taken some time to enjoy my surroundings. Today I toured The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg. Along with the amazing work of Salvador Dali was the special exhibit of Frida Kahlo. I had recently seen the movie “Frida”, that told of her tumultuous life, including her marriage to renowned Mexican artist, Diego Rivera. Seeing her work, photos, and journals up close and personal brought even more depth to this strong, independent artist.

Dali’s work excites me. I love peering deep into his paintings to see his hidden messages. The audio tour explained a lot of his pieces in depth, which was very helpful! I find it interesting that he was named Salvador after his older brother who had passed away before Dali was born. According to the commentary, this gave him a bit of an identity crisis, wondering if he was the “real” Salvador or if his brother was.

I’m feeling a trip to Dali’s hometown of Figueres in Catalonia, Spain, coming on…

Let’s take this digital nomad thing global!
