"The little girl expects no declaration of tenderness from her doll. She loves it -- and that's all. It is thus that we should love."

"It will make you feel young again" --The New Yorker

Another month, another delayed Blender digest!

Current Blender Survey:
Who's treated you the best in love, and what did they do?

Despite a season that has had than its fair share of disasters around the world, we gather together and we write about Romance. Sometimes a little bit of community and escapism can be a good and useful thing.

A great Ramble by our own Darwin (no, not the evolution guy with the beard)... she reveals her Deep Dark Secret. (Personally, I think it makes a lot more sense to go where people are available and hope that they're interesting than to go where they're interesting and hope that they're available, but as always, Your Mileage May Vary.)

As always, Read and Enjoy!
--Kirk, Blender-Keeper     

Almost Unbelieving - Ali
There's a lyrical quality to this, I can almost hear a song being made out of it.

He Ain't You - Savannah Haze
Actually, the author mentions this one is supposed to be set to music.

a love song to alburquerque... - chris
Chris writes "romance-related in an elliptical way - had i not ended up here i never would have met my true soulmate. so for me the two will always be inextricably linked...". I just know it as the city where Bugs Bunny was supposed to turn left.

You're The One, You're The One, You're The One (XXX XVIII) - coujeaux
Coujeaux with those long winding lines...perhaps a littles less formal than in previous months.

a broken heart can last for years - darwin
A small prose piece by this month's Ramble Riter. Ok, writer. Sorry.

Dive In - sassy
Fearing love is more of a worry than I would have assumed a few years ago.

For John - Abogada / abogadalbny
Fear of passion can be an issue too...

man i miss her - i'm just him
The final two lines make up a nice little bon mot.

Fair Warning
Even though you're not around
Two by darby, a fine use of prose.

Untitled - spiritwic
The old sordid story.

short life in a box - iammyself
Someone left the cake out in the rain.

To Friendship - angieubaldo
A creative writing assignment. Great use of details.
