I take my photos and make them into shadow boxes and show them at art fairs. When they were announcing the winners at the dinner the night before, my name got read and then seconds later my cell phone rings - it's my sister. I stand up, getting everyone's attention and I go outside to talk to her. She asks, "What did you win?" I reply, "I dunno sweetie - you called and I kinda got off track. Maybe some money I'm not sure."
The next day after I got the Excellence Award this troupe of singers came by to seranade me of sorts. And to give me a handful of prizes. It was very sweet. I look very embarrased, and I am.
