In Love With You
¡°That¡¯s when he took my heart in his hands
And kissed it gently
He open up his lips, then said this poetry
I¡¯m in love with you, in love with you
Love with you, in love with you
Love with you, in love with you
Love with you, in love with you¡±
With Ziggy Marley coming to Steamboat for a free concert, it moved me to think about one of my
favorite duets written and performed by his brother, six-time Grammy award winner Stephen Mar-
ley, along with Erykah Badu, another fine musician in her own right. And what a beautiful duet it is
too, especially for a beatnik song. I (KingDaddy) have always had a weakness for beatnik music,
with its off the grid poetic license that resonates creativity. Plus I just like the whole snapping of
the fingers bit that is a trademark of the genre. It just resonates ¡®cool¡¯. Now the message here isn¡¯t
hard to hear. Two people who fell in love, the story behind their meeting and a playful and melodic
constant declaring of their love for each other. In my opinion it¡¯s one of the most romantic songs
ever written and their performance of it is absolutely perfect. It¡¯s just a great song, one where it¡¯s
so easy to join in and sing along with and that can be listened to over and over without tiring of it.
It¡¯s probably my favorite love song of all time. Give it a listen and enjoy.
Happy August everyone and welcome to the 5th Anniversary edition of The Sunshine Express! It¡¯s
hard to believe we¡¯ve been publishing The Sunshine Express for 5 years now, especially since the
first year so many tried to discourage us and tell us that what we wanted to do could not be done.
Well, here we stand through much hard work and determination still bringing you the good news
and spreading smiles across the miles. We have so many people to thank who did stand up with us
and support us along the way that it would be impossible to list them all here. You know who you
are and we are super grateful to you, for without you we would not be here. From the writers to the
advertisers to you the readers, together we have all made it possible and have made a huge posi-
tive difference here in western Colorado and even around the world. Yes, the Sunshine Express

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 obser-
vant 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.

away places as Brazil and
Europe and whoa, even
Russia! People send it to
their families all over to
share the uplifting articles
as well as the cool new
technology we feature as
well. It¡¯s very enjoyable
to hear that incoming new
college kids list us as their
¡°hometown newspaper¡±, as
well as seeing 90 year olds
hold the paper up proudly
proclaiming it to be ¡°the
best newspaper they ever
read¡±. This is what keeps
us going against all odds

encouragement and compli-

and we thank God for the
opportunity to carry out the
