Santa Fe Prize nomination

Found out last week I was nominated for the Santa Fe Prize in Photography, for my "Opus for Anne" work. A Big Honor! 
I don't know who nominated me but am happy and grateful for the recognition. Thank you!

(Who knew when I signed up to be a Hospice Volunteer ten years ago how important that work would be, and how much good karma I would earn.)
