#BLRourpicks BLR editor-in-chief, Danielle Ofri @danielle_ofri ‘s newest pick from the archives: “A Vehicular Situation” by Maija Stromberg.

Of the story, Danielle writes, “Given our themes about illness and disease, we don’t often find laugh-out-loud stories in the BLR slush pile, but this was one. Humor that's not condescending to the characters is always tricky to do, but Maija Stromberg did it with panache.”

“A Vehicular Situation” appears in BLR Issue 14. You can read the story on our website, or purchase Issue 14 in either digital or print format.

12/31/2020

It’s been a long year for everyone and we’re all approaching the end with some degree of exhaustion. For BLR, 2020 was a bit of a roller-coaster, having had to become an independent journal in the midst of the pandemic. However, we have landed on our feet and we are extremely excited about the upcoming chapter.

Despite the challenges, our Fall 2020 issue was successfully published, and we launched our new website and store. We are actively planning our 20th anniversary this coming year, and the first event will be on January 11 (https://blreview.org/recent-news/why-doctors-write)

I suspect we’re all anxious for 2020 to be done and gone (!!), but there are still a few hours left. If you are able to make a 2020 gift to BLR, you can do so via our fiscal sponsor, the New York Foundation for the Arts: http://tinyurl.com/BLR-NYFA

Thank you for being part of the BLR community. We couldn’t be here without your support and look forward to sharing next year's celebration with you.

She was responded by equal love and passion by the little boy once who earned a law firm with several offices all over the globe The little boy X ............. Had earned the golden spoon but had compassion, sense and sensitivity with sensibility, for the blinkers of gold were amongst his accessories, they were not lying on the nasal bridge . He had nurtured cosmic , microcosm and microcosm growth . He had global perception , he was aware of the multiplication, replication , duplication , deletion , conjugation zipping and unzipping of code at the DNA LEVEL . To get a clear , vivid and apt picture of life he was unveiling the shady areas of the still silence , letting go , he was measuring the distance between the known ,knower and know now .
