And you know what those May Flowers bring? Pilgrims!

Man, I haven't thought of that joke for years.

Another good month at the Blender. This month's ramble is kind of a sequel to last months...2005.02.23, a meandering starting with Duran Duran's "Ordinary World"...

Anyway, read and enjoy!
--Kirk, Blender-Keeper     

the past wears tight jeans - in vino
Prêt à Porter - Tanqueray Cowboy
A poem (with probably the best title so far this year) and its "bump" (piece that was inspired by it.) Good stuff.

I never believed in always until you - Star of David
I'm not sure I believe in "Always" but it sure sounds better than "for the foreseeable future".

Untitled - Akash
Another stark but lovely piece.

planting - T. Bradley
Submitted by Juhaa. A chance for growth.

A Different March - Misti
Another detail-rich and attitude-laden work by Misti.

Pillars of Comfort In Pain - distant moon
Under the radar's sweep.

The Hope of Things - Ali
The ending felt a little trite but I liked the build up to it.

Mi Corazón (My love of my heart) - redplasticroses
Good prose piece.

Dispatch From Toronto - chris
Another true life story from Chris.

confessions of an pseudoromantic - darwin
I'm taken by the title...sometimes I think it describes me to a T.

Our Little Secret - Alphonse DiMino
Submitted by ardimino. Despite a little typo I like the sound of this work.

Brand - Aids - Irongirl.
"I bet we'll enjoy eating cheerios in the morning sitting in a sunny breakfast nook."

i think therefore i drink - aparajita
One or tee martoonis.

too mortal - galadrial
Oy, mortality.

alone in your arms - Kirk
I thought of this as a title a long time ago -- one of those works that could be read several very different ways.

Song Title - Lyle Lovett
Submitted by B.K., this month's top of the page quote, meant to be a bump on my little work.

Blender Ramble
2005.02.23, a musing on this Ordinary World.

Heart on Sleeve Corner
145 more heartsongs sent to the Blender last month.
