We got many more submissions than we expected--a thrilling circumstance. Some of us have been reading submissions for a long time (decades even), and could hardly believe how exceptional these projects and proposals were. What a pool!
We understand each submission to be gesture of support for what we are doing here. We thank everyone who shared their work with us.
