Summer is here again. With days this long it's hard to be too unhappy. Another great month of Front Page Picks, plus a very personal ramble by one of the Blender stalwarts, Misti On Her Divorce.

As always, read and enjoy, contribute and chat...

Instructions to a Teenager - C. Peterman (Age 15)
Submitted by Kirk. Work by a friend of mine...surprising amount of world-weariness for being written at so young an age.

I sure can't. Mmmm, fondue.

I never want to play again - Star of David
Text messaging games. (Would "unique" have worked as well without cheating? Perhaps not.)

Taking Inventory - sassy
Sexy and romantic.

The dear one - Mr. Pruffrock
Poignant little work from a new personality on the Blender.

the whether man - i'm just him
Still not crazy about the syntax and spelling, but with a good core, and a clever title.

Write More - wistful
Some meta-writing. "A bird does not sing because it has the answer. It sings because it has a song." -- I like that.

Love Quote - B.K.
This month's top of the page quote.

graffiti - blakey
Sometimes one sentence is all you need.

cloisonné - Madison
A well-painted scene.

Problem Solved - Misti
Sometimes problems have solutions. A great slice of life.

Hello you - wolfscreamer
An intriguing framing symmetry.

Maybe I Believed - Ali
Maybe, baby.

i can't say why - darwin
Something about the detail of dish suds...

The Rum Diary - Hunter S. Thompson
Submitted by THX1138. A thought from the gonzo journalist.

Do You Know? - redplasticroses
A great soft touch in the details of this work.

Featured Guest Ramble
Misti On Her Divorce...I think there's something profound about how more divorces are initiated by women--sometimes it's hard for men to know what it should all be about.

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