And you don't even need to do a thing (except email me that is)
Hi there, I know I have been MIA for a few weeks-- I think the last newsletter I did was way back in June (remember June?) Things have been happening, and I hope you can forgive me. To make your forgivness that much more forthcoming, I have something to sweeten the pot!

The musical sensation that's out of this world
