Most of us do have lives that would make great tangos! You know, themes of lost love, youth, our mothers, etc.
To this end, there is a contest at Heartbreak Tango for Valentine's Day:
Maria Finn has written a book, Hold me Tight and Tango Me Home (which she promises to send me for review), but meanwhile she has a contest which may be entered by essay (100-200 wds) or by a short video. About--without giving any names--a heartbreak in your life.
Well ok, we all have had them, but the winner will have a tango written and recorded, about his/her own personal heartbreak, by Marlan Barry. And then we can dance to our "own tango."
You can be sure I will be entering with a "tango" story of my own. Deadline is February 28, 2010.
