It's the ones who resist that we most want to kiss/
Wouldn't you say? --George Michael, "Cowboys and Angels"
Blender of Love Digest August 1998

Happy Anniversary!

The Blender of Love Digest has been around for an entire year! It's been a blast, and hopefully will be for many year to come.

It gets a little bit quieter around here during the summer, but the "Heart on Sleeve Corner" section is as good as ever, and that's reflected in my "New Works" selections.

This month features a review of "There's Something About Mary" and a ramble that features the Head to Head Battle of the Clichés-- hope you enjoy and keep the Blender in your regular summer reading.

--Kirk, Blender-Keeper

New Works

A disjoint prose piece about the "cinder block on your chest" of love.
Rainy morning at a Starbucks with you

Poetic slice of life-- excellent final stanza.

Watching someone as they sleep is a classic scene, nicely handled here.
Frequently Asked Questions

Not a typical FAQ.
By Rennie Lorca
Another of Lorca's quick twist of words.

Again, a piece that is strongest in its final stanzas.

An interesting experimental metaphor in prose-- a little long for what it says, but worth the read.
