Here comes the holiday season, and another issue of the Blender of Love Digest.
And your [insert appropriate holiday here] gift is a terrific set of poetry and prose...a really excellent selection this month.
This month features a guest ramble by Gala, a musing on dealing with the holiday season while down
on your romantic luck.
As always, Read and Enjoy!
Who knows how to make love stay?
- Tom Robbins
Excerpts from "Still Life With Woodpecker"
hilltop on a cloudless night
My humble attempt at emulating Robbins, a long time ago.
Two works by juan d'fule..."Monday" is especially lovely, but I can't resist the skinny dip reference in "Breathe You".
Chain of Thought
I love the closing five lines of this work.
giving it voice
"Some people simply have a way with words"
Galadrial wrote while describing this work...and as Steve Martin
added, "and others...oh, uh, not have way, I guess."
my safe haven
Another fine little prose work. But either my tastes are simply changing, or NPR is overrated. A little. Do I need to hand in my offical token liberal/moderate card now?
Quote on one of my favorite words PASSION!
Two quots found by B.K., including this
month's top of the page quote.
so we kiss
Off the top of my head I can't remember a work that does as good of a job at painting a scene as this one does.
Heartbreak or Heartsongs
I'm running out of intelligent things to say, so I'll just say...remember that Looney Tune where Daffy dresses up as Pocahontas and says "Me Pocahontas love-um! ... marry, raise-um little 'poca-chips'!"? Weird what sticks in your head through all the years.
I can never bring myself to delete stored email...
Holidays Equal Loneliness
Ugh...this piece on divorce and the holidays really hit home...
Submitted by rthoseflipflops.
Nice use of nine words.
Seven words now? What is this, "Name That Tune"?
Shades of "The Unbearable Lightness of Being".
Because They Killed the Bull of Heaven
No one has an eye for brand-dropping like Misi.
Fun With Dog Physics
Delightful playfulness in the content and use of rhymes.
Blue Christmas. "When All You Want Is Love For Christmas.", a guest ramble by Gala.
Heart on Sleeve Corner
185 more heartsongs sent to the Blender last month.
