This amazing photograph was taken at the Comfort & Joy Brighter Days Ahead Winter Solstice Celebration by the inimitable Tom Schmidt (also known as Dot)! Dot caught me right before I went on stage to perform an opening ritual with members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. He knows how to bring the best out of his subjects, like a great photographer should!
