Back from Laramie...

And I see a letter from the O'Neill Theater Center.

Fully expecting the rejection chimes of "We're sorry, but..."

Instead I see, "We are thrilled to inform you that The Albatross has been selected as a semifinalist...from a field of 735 scripts, yours joins the narrowing pool..."

I swoon. I feel lightheaded.

I try not to think about the fact that only about 10 playwrights get to experience this wonderful workshop of their play in the month of July. It might be me. It might not.

I try not to think at all...

Besides, I'm too tired from a long day of flying across the country.
