August 25

"When I care to be powerful--to use
my strength in the service of my vision,
then it becomes less and less important
wheather I am afraid."
~Audre Lorde

Jane Lathrop Stanford, born this day in
1828. Opened the doors of Stanford
University to women, in the face of fierce
critcism.

Nurses was funded in 1908.

Happy Birthday, Dorothea Tanning- surrealist,
sculptor, set and costume designer, and poet/
writer. Born this day in 1910, Ms. Tanning is
still pushing her creative muse around the
studio. A career that started in 1935- she
has always allowed growth in her work. From
surrealism to expressionism to poetry. A great
goddess of the Arts.
