I am enormously pleased and more than a little humbled to announce that I have been awarded the Peter McNamara Award. I say awarded, because this doesn’t feel like the kind of thing you win, which tends to sound very competitive. Rather, some fine people like Van Ikin and the folks who run the award decide you are somehow worthy. I am happily mystified as to why, but would like to thank them, and Mac’s family. It’s really rather lovely.
