Our Collective Heart Goes Out to You, Our Talented Readers

We had a fun time with our theme month of February (except for the frustration, fights and crushing disappointments- it was 'love', after all.) Our blog had lots of traffic and lots of great comments. As we said, we'd pick our favourite and award a prize. It would be best to say like the dodo in Alice, "All have won, and all must have prizes", but that would take a government grant, and the paperwork for that is murder!

It's a tie: Commentor of the Month goes to Sharon Hurlbut and Ron Stanley.
Ron's 14-word microfiction for the 14th of February is:

I scrape ice off your car.
Later, you'll repay me,
warming up the bed.

Sharon's is...

Fourteen Words of Love

Are better spent
on grocery lists.
Love is a silent tongue,
prolific, urgent, shared.

So, we proudly beg our winners to send their snailmail addresses to (That's 'dot c a' not 'dot com' my non-Canadian friends.) We'd like to send you a slice of the Canlit cannon! (That's a good book by a Canadian, my non-cake-metaphor-getting friends.)

Honourable mention much go to Dennis Mahagin, for his 14-worder, and Ben Henry Swadley, for his heartbreaking tale (with a happy ending) posted as a comment under Anne's piece "Can You Hear the Drums, Fernando?" Thanks guys.

Keep the love flowin'!
