And they say sacrifice
is letting sweet love go
-Edie Brickel
Blender of Love Digest March 1999

On For March

What a start for a month-- not only am I trying to deal with February not having enough days, but then I end up helping my cousins to move, and get to catch a sofa lowered from a 2nd floor porch. With my head. (No harm done, but I had a backache the next day.)

But I have survived, and the Blender Digest has survived along with me. We're clawing our way back to spring with Love Poems to help us get through the rest of the winter months. (With the exception of our guests from that other hemisphere, of course.)

Read, Love, Enjoy.

--Kirk, Blender-Keeper
