My dear friend Patricia Lay-Dorsey is currently featured as one of the "5 of the most inspiring women on Instagram" in the new issue of "OMagazine." Patricia and I have been close friends for many, many years, and it is a delight to see her rise to national prominence.
Patricia has also been awarded a residency of several weeks at a well known artist's retreat. She will have everything provided, including private housing, meals, and whatever else she requires to express her creative talents. She is already planning the projects she will pursue during her residency there. She is especially looking forward to meeting the other creative people (from various fields) that she will meet during her stay.
Right on, Patricia. I love seeing you shoot to glory, especially that you are now in your seventies.
Here is the writeup:

"I've been an artist for decades and have always preferred to see only the sweet stuff. But now that I'm 73, I want to be a part of what really is. And being a photographer gives me an excuse to meet new people, whether I'm scooting around downtown Detroit or going to an electronic music festival (I'm known as Grandma Techno around here). I view my Instagram as my living room. It's a place for people to feel safe and live in the present." —@patricialaydorsey
