Welcome to the longest day of the year! Blessings on those of you for whom this is a holiday. Heck, blessings on everyone else, too. I hope you are enjoying the delights of early summer.
The variety of stories last week was excellent. Thank you all so much for taking the time to write and share them with us. It was difficult to choose, but I finally decided I must give the win to Sandra Davies for Dawn Chorus. This story continues to grow in depth of both plot and emotion.
Honorable Mention goes to Rich for Decision Time. I don't know if this was a one-off or something larger, but it really captured my imagination.
