issue #13 - closer
if the blueprintreview was a hotel, this issue numbered 13 wouldn't exist. we would skip it, together with the potentially irritating themes it includes and move on to safer figures and grounds. and doing so, miss a cat-green vice, a runaway from summer, someone who stays still at the window -
and the Story I Would Tell You if We Were in Bed Together Late at Night, just to name a few of the incidents that wait there, in room 13. besides coffee with Kevin Costner (yes, that one really happened), and close-ups of things that will be gone tomorrow.
the theme of 13?
it's close / closer.
which, according to the Thesaurus, encloses 70 different effects that the act of coming closer can have: from closing out to closing up and closing in, from closeness to closedness.
so, close the door, and get closer to the blue.
enjoy your stay ~
