Congrats Daddy!

Daddy was just notified that is a finalist for the Herb Alpert award for composers given out by Cal Arts--he is one of 20 finalists and the award is 75K!!!!! He was nominated anonymously. As a finalist, he gets special consideration for an artist's residency at MacDowell, Ucross, Hedgebrook and the like. We all know that Daddy rocks--nice to see some one else give him the props he deserves.

Also, we listened to a radio story about MacDowell on our drive back to Seattle. A painter talked about how, after days of silence, her mind finally became quiet and she began to create. I instantly thought of Lara, and the space she's taking to write. You too, Christian. You make beautiful things.

Woah! This is so exciting! Mom and dad, I think me and Eva might have been hindering your creative work.

That is so wonderful!!!
