1973: Democratically elected President Salvador Allende moments away from death during military coup at Moneda presidential palace in Chile. (World Press Photo Winners – Orlando Lagos)
A line from Salvador Allende
Balancing between abstract
expressionism & futurism
the calm metal instrument
of my voice tweaks the once-
sacred double-helix to create
pyramids in bold colors &
textures. Exquisite tropes. The
great avenues will open again.

Isabel Allende went into exile after her uncle, Chilean president Salvador Allende, was overthrown in a CIA-assisted coup in 1973. She traveled, worked as a journalist, and wrote her books, “The House of the Spirits,” “Of Love and Shadows,” “Eva Luna,” and “The Stories of Eva Luna.” Her latest novel, “The Infinite Plan,” is set, as is she, in Northern California.
