Oh, I needed this today. Your words took me to a place where my stomach wasn't twisting in knots over what has happened, and where my mind isn't racing to get to "the next thing on the list."

Except for the bit of a scare with the falling ice, you brought me calm and peace, with tender awe mixed in.

I don't know how I missed this wonderful piece this past week, but I am so glad I found it now. Congratulations on placing first this week, you certainly deserve it!

You not only do a magnificent job of conveying the serenity your MC feels, but you paint such a vivid picture of everything he/she (I don't think you specify, although it is told in first person), sees. From the ice floes, humpback whales and chinstrap penguins, I saw it all clearly. My favorite part: "...mirror and masterpiece."

Great job!
