I Did a Big, Scary Thing

I applied to be represented in an important regional institution. It took me all day to get all the photos, bio, CV, etc., together in a professional manner and I made myself sick to my stomach for a bit. Must mean it matters a lot to me. Now it is done and I'm ready to enter the next big thing with less fear; I hope.

In celebration of this feat, I give you "Dahlias in Mexican Vase."
