A woman is like a tea bag
– you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.
Eleanor Roosevelt (October 11, 1884 – November 7, 1962)
NATIONAL COMING OUT DAY
“Sculptural form is not the imitation of natural form
any more than poetry is the imitation of natural conversation . . .
While a piece of sculpture may contain visual forms with which we are acquainted by daily experience, it is essentially a design worked out by means of the juxtaposition of masses in space, just as poetry is a design wrought by the sounds of words in time.”
~ Elizabeth Wyn Wood (October 8, 1903 – January 27, 1966)
“Day of Atonement”
So the lover must struggle for words.
~ T. S. Eliot (September 26, 1888 – January 4, 1965)
Love Note Day
Write a short love note to anyone you love.
A small “I love you” note in your child’s lunch.
It’s not a slam at you when people are rude, it’s a slam at the people they’ve met before. F. Scott Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 – December 21, 1940)

Celebration of buildings over 138′ tall.
The Beehive may not be a skyscraper, but the idea is the same. Several functional layers placed on top of each other into a single structure.
This is the merit and distinction of art:
to be more real than reality,
to be not nature but nature’s essence.
~ William Ernest Henley (August 23, 1849 – July 11, 1903)
The bee collects honey from flowers in such a way
as to do the least damage or destruction to them,
and he leaves them whole,
undamaged and fresh,
just as he found them.
~ Saint Francis de Sales (August 21, 1567 – December 28, 1622)
Art is expression,
and to have high expression you must have something high to express.
