Close to you…(yes, it’s a song title…and??)

Hello Dear Reader, so it seems we both survived the recent tragic (shocking???—even though we all knew it was approaching her a little faster than ideal) death of Amy W. Glad to see you here again. I’m sure her death had some of us re-thinking our vices and how much they truly cost us…(Is love a vice? Do we really even need love? I’d accomplish so much (maybe be finished with my first three novels by now..best-seller stuff, for sure) if the fleshy muscle in my chest only pumped blood and oxygen.) Although maybe me rocking Carrie Underwood’s Cowboy Casanova has got me paranoid—I think I may have met the “good time cowboy Casanova,” *sigh* but what can I say, except misery loves company…especially the candy-coated kind. Bah.

Enough of that boring stuff…I am the protagonist of my own story after all, and whining leaves a sour taste in my mouth, so like Professor Farnsworth likes to say, good news everyone, Women in REDzine’s first event of the summer will be at the Summerset Festival of the Arts 2011 this Saturday, July 30th and we hope to see some of you on the beautiful UW-Baraboo campus for all the festivities. I hear there’ll be salsa dancing and a 3-course Latin dinner offered…sounds like fun!!!! Plus we’ll be giving out copies of our special summer issue gratis…as in FREE! So come see us, ask questions, submit your work!!!

BTW, if I did you the serious disservice and left you feeling uncertain about whether love is worth it …check out I BELONG TO YOU by Brian McKnight, and Lenny Kravitz’s (same title, I BELONG TO YOU)…bust it out tonight for that special someone because they may not be there tomorrow. :O Gah, I just totally cheesed out on you dear reader, I apologize, alas, music indeed soothes the savage beast 🙂

Until next we meet, I remain your intrepid (and fearless) leader,
The Editor-in-Chief, Women in REDzine.
