It's been a hectic couple of weeks. Events have followed their usual tendency to all happen at the same time.

In the midst of the hubbub and hoop-de-do, Friday brought some especially nice news: carte blanche and the Creative Nonfiction Collective, by which I mean competition judge Charlotte Gill, have chosen "Schrรถdinger's Dog" for the contest short list.

I think this means that in some multiverse, this essay wins! But seriously, in the particular multiverse in which I live, I also feel like a winner--grateful and happy that this work has touched readers. That's the goal!

Many thanks to the contest sponsors: carte blanche and the Creative Nonfiction Collective. I know how much work it takes to run a contest, and I appreciate it very much!

You can look at the official announcement here. (And remember that moose sighting? Still waiting on that million dollars.)
