GRAMMY Nomination! Wish you were here Elizabeth!

Being nominated for a GRAMMY in such an amazing thing.  I think about Elizabeth Catlett and want to share her with all of you.  If you have not checked her out, may I suggest you go to http://elizabethcatlett.net/.  Note the time line.  Some of the years will have a short video attached.  There are many YouTube videos of her talking about various aspects of her life.  She was a force, and I am unbelievably happy that we met and became friends.
