There is something about awards that makes me feel a little uneasy. I did the work that I am being acknowledged for because I had a powerful reason to do so. So here’s the dilemma. On the one hand I am grateful for the attention that my work is receiving—thank you very much. On the other I am terrified by the attention that my work is receiving. For me it’s a double edged sword. In any case, I wish to humbly share the news that my latest book Landscape Dreams, A New Mexico Portrait is a finalist in the Arts Book Category for a New Mexico/Arizona Book Award.
