A cowboy takes his lonely computer in hand
And tries to find the Shades Out West on broadband
But it's not there & slightly overdue
And that's what makes cowboys sing the blues
There have been some personal events that have interrupted the flow of the magazine. For now, and being truthful, I am exhausted. I am going to take this time to spend Christmas with my family and maybe even sleep for an entire day.
The Out West issue will be published January 1, 2011; the Good Lord willing and the creeks don't rise. In the new year Shades will be published February 1, April 1, June 1, August 1, October 1, and December 1. Six issues per year. This will be a more manageable schedule for the editor and all our contributors.
We will be adding new columns, new columnist and contributors. We have some amazing people and articles scheduled.
The Shades Editorial Staff, our Columnists, and Contributors would like to wish our readers A Very Merry Christmas and an on-time New Year!
