Sometimes life surprises you, if you let it.
Like last Friday, as I was making my windy way across Boston Harbor I got a phone call telling me that a travel story I had written for the New York Daily News just won the prize as Best Feature Article in a Newspaper and could I come to the awards luncheon.
How fun. How random.
Not that it means anything substantial ultimately. But it was nice to go to a sit-down lunch at the Helmsley yesterday afternoon and meet the Premier of Bermuda. And the bonus was discovering that my itinerant ramblings get read by a lot more people than just the handful in my immediate circle.
