The Sunshine
Uplifting The Western Slope
bring you joy, make you smile and feel good, and maybe even
laugh a little bit. Regular columnists, Karen Schafer, Dr. Scott
Rollins, and Sandy Lauzon are in fine Winter form with such
wonderful words of wisdom, experience and insight, that we
are excited to be able to share them with you. Also, a very
informative website is now available, that addresses concerns
and answers questions with real facts on the often misun-
derstood fracking issue, which has been the driver of our
country¡¯s huge advances towards energy independence, so we
wanted to make that available to you (see page 3). Plus, you
will find something new and beautiful swimming in Colorado
waters that shows promise of improving some of our more
difficult to manage fisheries, that we found very exciting. Of
course, you will also find many fun events and things to do
all around us this month as well, and we encourage you to get
up, get out and enjoy some of them. Many of the options may
help you to make this a special Valentine¡¯s Day for your lov-
ers, friends, and your families, so go to it!
We wish to take this opportunity in early 2014 to thank all of
the fine businesses that have supported us for almost 4 years
now, making it possible for us to bring to you The Sunshine
Express each month. We are also very grateful to you, our
readers, for your wonderful enthusiasm, encouragement and
spiritual support. We are happy to be publishing the good
news and uplifting western Colorado. It is an honor that we
don¡¯t take lightly. Our best wishes to you for a very joyful and
love-filled Valentine¡¯s Day. Always remember that you are
beautiful and loved dearly by your creator, and by us. Smile,
be happy and let us see a whole lot of hand holding out there!
Love and blessings to all. - KingDaddy & Moonstruck

Hold My Hand...
¡°Yesterday, I saw you standing there
Your head was down, your eyes were red
No comb had touched your hair
I said get up, and let me see you smile
We¡¯ll take a walk together
Walk the road awhile
¡®Cause, I¡¯ve got a hand for you¡±
(Originally published November, 2012, we bring these words back to your attention as our Valentine¡¯s
Day message and gift - KD) Hootie & the Blowfish. What a name for a band. The first time one hears it,
the immediate temptation may be to laugh and make fun of the band members who came up with it.
That would be a mistake. For, whatever the situation was that inspired the name, something really good
has inspired their music. With a debut CD that sold 16 Million copies in the 1st year, one would be wise
to put aside derisive thoughts and take a listen. The first song you may want to listen to is ¡®Hold My
Hand¡¯. This rock song has greatness written all over it; a strong melody, powerful harmonies and potent,
positive energy lyrics that stir the soul. The visual created, of a friend holding their hand out to you say-
ing, ¡°Get up! and let me see you smile,¡± let¡¯s ¡°take a walk together¡±, I¡¯ll help you along for awhile, is a
very moving visual. It stirs up the emotions and makes one feel good. Don¡¯t we all want that? People in
our lives that not only care, but are willing to be right there beside us, to lift us up, not bring us down?
People who ¡°don¡¯t want to be one of your problems¡±, but want to help solve them? Friends to hold our
hands? ¡°With a little love and some tenderness,¡± the song begins, ¡°we¡¯ll walk upon the water, we¡¯ll rise
above this mess.¡± Indeed. Truly, if we all held each others¡¯ hands more often, very few of us would feel
alone so often, and many more of us would feel good more often. And feeling good is the key to every-
thing. It is the positive frequency that manifests all good things, in abundance. There are too many in
this world that do not feel good, and it shows. So, it is time to change that. It is time, as the song says, to
¡°take the world together, take ¡®em by the hand¡±. Take them to a place where they can be anything they
wanna be, the place of feeling good. It¡¯s time we dedicated ourselves to loving people ¡°the best that, the
best that we can¡±. It¡¯s time we held each others¡¯ hands.
Welcome to February! We are glad you are here. Inside this edition of The Sunshine Express we feature
Valentine¡¯s Day heavily. There is a whole lotta love inside and we hope it will move you, inspire you,

The silverhawk feather that graces our front page was chosen for it¡¯s significant spiritual
symbolism. Hawks are symbols of spirit, wisdom and power. The hawk is the messenger. It is
also about visionary power and guardianship, the hawk is very protective of the young in its
nest. It teaches us about providing for family and self. Hawk teaches us to be observant and to
pay attention to what we may overlook. This could mean a talent we don¡¯t use, a blessing for
which we haven¡¯t expressed gratitude, or a message from Spirit. The hawk has keen eyesight, it
is about opening our eyes and seeing that which is there to guide us. Hawk is also about new
beginnings and always moving forward along the correct path.
