Spirits have flown. Turkeys have been fed. Trees have already begun shimmering.
In all the festive rush, you may ask, “Hey, who won the Obscura SCARE ME IN A THOUSAND WORDS Halloween competition?”
Well, well, well. You may direct that question to our winner, Deirdre Fanzo, who also won a $25 Amazon gift card, a candy-filled mug — that too in Obscura black — and loads of other congratulatory treats you should send her way.
To Ms. Fanzo and her winning short story “The Devil’s Darning Needle,”
I still have my left hand pretending as if it’s pressing that darn needle between my thumb and forefinger.
Halloween has past. Thanksgiving’s everyday. And hope every tomorrow be Christmas for you.
