Winner – Robert Russell Sassor – First Light — 9 Comments

    • Thank you, John, for your touching words — I’m flattered. I am so grateful to for this chance to share my work!

  1. There are many climates on this third rock from our sun: that obvious 40-mile paper-thin fragile ecosphere within which we all live; the climate of human interaction with all other living things and themselves; and the climate of possibility, the organized and random nature of all living things. Robert Sassor’s piece is a lovely accessible swath cut thru the climates, a beautiful portrayal of the faces of life, and death. It’s like a writing that feels more fit for a comfy British reader telling the story out loud than even for just the eyes. And from me that’s the highest compliment.

    • Dear Michael: I’m speechless. Thank you so much for your generous words. I am honored that you felt this way about the story!
