This week's contest is titled "Let's Move Beyond It" by Mike Shenk. The answer to this week's contest is a six letter word

And here is a shot of the muggles which were on the Zoom call Tuesday evening. Special appreciation to Schmeel who called in from Israel in the middle of the night. We love international muggles.

Yep. On shore. But... I don't quite get why the answer is what the answer is.

Found something that can't be a coincidence but no idea what to do with it.

Too many fracking movie directors, performing artists, and other things I know nothing about. I let you know Sunday if I even finish this stinkin' grid.

On shore. Found the grid a little on the hard side and the meta a little tricky.

I think I have it - I have a 6 letter word. But usually it ties to the puzzle but not 100% how this one does. But its probably what I'll submit. If I am right I really liked this one - it made me realize I really need to organize my closet!

Ashore! The grid took an hour, which included spilling coffee on my clipboard and dabbing with tissue. It was feeling ominous, but the meta just popped for me. I’m glad I’ll have some time for other activities this weekend. 8-) Best of luck to all, and see you Tuesday in the meetup!
