I’ve been teaching my son to cook.  Well, I’ve been teaching my son to make food–that’s more accurate.  He loves egg salad.  So, we’ve begun with how to boil an egg and the importance of paprika.  You’d be amazed at how often those two, simple factors can ruin egg salad.  Just because they are easy or comfortable doesn’t make them less challenging in their own way.  This next Call is from one of my favorite organizations, and it is easy to enter. But, it is an opportunity not to be overlooked…

Check out this Call for Entries from The Arts & Culture Alliance for Knoxville Photo 2014. This is a great show run by a great organization. I’ve shown here several times, and I was even the juror last year
