To celebrate Martha Graham’s 117th birthday on May 11, 2011, Google celebrated by turning their logo for one day into a logo dedicating the life and legacy of Graham.

Martha Graham has been sometimes termed the “Picasso of Dance,” in that her  importance and influence to modern dance can be considered equivalent to  what Pablo Picasso was to modern visual arts. Her impact has been also compared with the influence Stravinsky had on music, or Frank Lloyd Wright had on architecture.

Within a few minutes Nyla struck up a conversation with Clara Bjergsen, who was being extremely friendly. She was welcoming Nyla to the neighborhood and asking how her experience was so far. All was fine until Nyla spotted something strange out of the corner of her eye…

Um, who is that… and why are they wearing a bear costume?” Nyla asked Clara quietly.

Oh that? It’s bear night. Every week this bar hosts a ‘bear night’ and people come in dressed as bears. I don’t get the appeal but, they’re harmless and usually keep to themselves.

If that was true, Nyla probably would have been fine, but within a few seconds two ‘bears’ walked up to their table and started watching the TV on the wall behind them. One even sat down without a word. Between that and her drink, which was about 48 simoleons, not being up to her standards, Nyla decided it was time to head home. Kind of a bust for her first outing in Windenburg.
