Lorraine, I am so impressed, congratulations! It must be a thrill to be so recognized. You deserve it. Way to go! And I LOVE the piece, too!

How exciting for you! Congratulations! Be sure to let us know the outcome.

I also enjoyed your previous post regarding the creative process. It reminded me of a quote I came across recently that was basically a simplification of what you wrote. It went something like: "Contemplate, Commit, Create."

Congrats again on your show!
