  < august 2006 >
Welcome to the latest issue of the Blender of Love Digest ever!

Perhaps I can blame the summer humidity... or summer vacations... or the misfortunes of my beloved Red Sox.

Or I could just buck up and take responsibility for it like a man.

Nah. I'm going to blame the time I spent on this month's Blender Feature, a 'Labor of Love' to reclaim Timna Woollard's art from the 1990 film "Where The Heart Is"... and even a tool to get the calendars as promised in the movie.

The seasonal lethargy seemed to take its toll on the Blender writers as well, with fewer submissions for the month... but there was still a ton of quality, so read this month's picks and enjoy!
--Kirk, Blender-Keeper     

Paralyzed - Ali
A lovely and rich twilight kind of work.

Flashback - blakey
A nostalgic tribute to this season that will be too soon ended.

Midnight Synergy - B.K.
Something about this piece makes me want to sing "Pi-la-tes" to the tune of "Volare".... whoa oh oh oh...

Not the lucky strike it once seemed.

Out of the City - chris
A prose piece on Honesty, reclaimed from a HS literary mag.

TEFLON DON - rennielorca
But how do they get Teflon to stick to the pan?

not today - ladyinwaiting
A dark and unhappy work.

misplaced trust can break even broken hearts - aparajita
Closing line of the month.

city in motion
internal dialogue
Two by darwin... I find both of these pretty easy to relate to.

With You - JD
A nice and happy contrast to many of the themes this issue.

You Kept Me Outside Of It All - Irongirl
Dealing with the oblivious.

Ms Peter Pan (the interview) - i'm just him
Turnaround on some old characters.

Perpendicular Straits - inthiscity
" He sees me as perpendicular / the way I curve / my vulnerable points" - fantastic.
