Summer's in full swing! Hope you're having a good one, with plenty of sweat and sun and sunblock and maybe a bad paperback novel or two.
Over 700 works sent in last month, which I think might be a record for the Blender! I had plenty to choose from, but all the ones here on the frontpage really stood out.
This month's "Ramble" is something Mo and I wanted to get in writing before the memories had a chance to fade, in honor of our one year anniversary, it's the story of all the disasters that made our wedding great.

Terrific title, and one of the best rhyming/rhythmic poems I've seen in a
Lay Me Down
Submitted by Corinna.
I'm always a sucker for a good closing line.
- Belle de Jour

This is probably another "digital nostalgia" pick for me, what can happen
when you stumble on some old computer files.
I always like deevaa's work when it becomes a little more realistic.
- Bridget O
A few extremely well chosen words.
Not quite a haiku, but it doesn't need to be.
Tables and Love
Romance as Carpentry.
Misti had a rough month last month, but this is by no means
a "sympathy" pick...this is a alternative-pop-culture whirlwind.
Last month, people were trying their hand at stories exactly
55 words in length...this one is my favorite of all of them, the 55
limit produced some interesting results.
What Went Wrong (and what went right)
A tale of a wedding gone awry...not horribly awry, but awry nonetheless.

705 more heartsongs sent to the Blender last month.
