You could hear my war whoop halfway down the block when I opened my email. Hallelujah and pass the chocolate!

I'm still floating...

Meredith, Congratulations! It was a pleasure reading your winning entry. I am having a piece of chocolate to celebrate right along with you.

Katrina, Congratulations on your entry. I enjoyed reading yours as well. That's 2 pieces of chocolate I can have now.

Congratulations, Meredith. Your poems are so beautiful. I recently came across the poems you sent to my brother and they made me weep, for your pain, for his pain, for the joy of your transcendence, for the bittersweet joy of Gary's Transcendence...it's right and good that you use your voice to speak inspiration and comfort - you're a blessing to all of us touched by cancer. Thank you. And I'm totally in on that piece (2 pieces?) of chocolate to celebrate too!
