Another week of writing and reading richness and difficulty for me in choosing a winner from the many candidates, but while it was relatively easy to decide Terrie pipped the rest of you to the post, I was unable to decide which of hers – I was hovering between three – merited the topmost spot. So this is as much an award for consistency as superb story-telling. Thank you all for so tirelessly posting and commenting each week; your participation propels this site to excellence.
