You know, I kind of thought this would be your reaction. Well done, Rachel. Your win was very well deserved. The Composition was a glorious piece of writing that grew better and better with every read. The last line was shiver-producing (in a beautiful way).

Congratulations!

Congratulations, Rachel!

Congratulations, Tim!

Thanks so much, judges. I'm surprised--no, stunned--and extremely grateful.

Congratulations, Jan! You're the second BoB to wander in this morning. (One more to go.)

Fantastic message in your winning entry, Jan, communicated wonderfully with a good dash of humor and a lot of chocolate. What's not to love?
