Uh-oh, we goofed up! We  just learned that today’s Art of the Day selection had a syntax error in the database and the page wasn’t displaying properly. Our extreme thanks to the early birds who wrote to let us know! In case you missed it, here’s Carmen Trueheart’s piece which epitomizes this week’s theme “Little Things.”  Look for more little things via EBSQ’s AOTD all week.
