When I opened the mailbox and took out the large manila envelope and spied the address label from my former employer, I imagined the worst, someone had finally decided to start meddling with the pension that I haven’t even started taking yet!
But when I feverishly tore open the envelope, out came two copies of Inside Jersey magazine with the latest article of mine to be published there, and also a certificate I’d won in the 2016 national Folio Awards contest, which covered the summary article I’d written — also for Inside Jersey — on my Year in the Death of One Man series. I only won an Honorable Mention, but seeing as how it’s a nationwide competition, I still felt honored.
Many thanks again to Rosemary Parrillo and the rest of the crew at Inside Jersey for making me look good!
