So. By one of those odd little twists of fate, the Blender-Keeper's divorce is final on the same day the Loveblender Digest is due. I guess all I can say is, Better Luck Next Time to us both...

The Blender Carries on! Actually, this month's feature is Mateusz Pozar's "Relationship Evaluation Form", a clever, slightly tongue-in-cheek way of letting each other know what was good and what was not so good when love was still in the air...

Many good works this month, more than could fit on the front page, so read and enjoy!
--Kirk, Blender-Keeper     

interim sun - Madison
Lovely, lovely uxtaposition of words and image.

Lingering - Jane Rain
Once again, I get captivated by a line: "That isn't the only thing I remember you by. Not nearly."

The Second Time - JD
Nostalgic recollection of a silly card and soft hands.

Good God, What A Night That Was - Petronius Arbiter
Submitted by Irish. A little ditty from the first century, translated by Kenneth Rexroth.

I don't know if I agree with the last line but it's a good last line.

Leave - Isabella Svenska.
Here because I think it comes close to what my now ex- wants to express to me after a few too many questioning emails.

Moon Rhapsody - Chances
Chances wrote "Geographically specific, it's mid-winter here!"...I always feel bad that when I just end up writing about the seasonal weather for the front Front Page, I always get it wrong for people in the other hemisphere...ah well!

A Lover's Distance - distant moon
Old Testament references abound in this gentle and lyrical work.

love isn't math - chris
Great bookends on this solid piece.

I hate... - angieubaldo
"I hate using arial font because that's her name.", heh heh heh.

Bumpy rhythm, bumpy life.
