Notes From a Trailing Spouse (Transparent Narrative Contest Winner)

It's been a good weekend...friends from the US in town, Alt beer, plenty of pictures, and oh, yes, ... pork knuckles. 

Friday kicked off with an email from Matador editor David Miller, informing me that I had won the Transparent Narrative Contest in Traveler's Notebook..... 

"Well-crafted, funny and immersive. I can see why you won the contest."

"This is one of my all-time favorites on TNB. I laughed out loud several times, and I really felt like you let us get inside your head. I loved the honesty of this piece, and I could definitely relate to the identity reformation/loss that you experienced." 

"...great wording and very transparent. You have a way of luring the reader in and keeping him/her there."
