Uplifting The Western Slope
Pg 2 - The Sunshine Express
¡°Do you remember the 21st night of September?
Love was changing the minds of pretenders
While chasing the clouds away¡±
There have been many songs written over the years about September, from the ¡°September Song¡±,
an American pop standard composed by Kurt Weill, with lyric by Maxwell Anderson, introduced by
Walter Huston in the 1938 Broadway musical Knickerbocker Holiday, to this jazzy dance song by
Earth, Wind & Fire, written by Maurice White, Al McKay, and Allee Willis which was released as a
single in 1978. Most of these September songs touch a familiar poetic metaphor that compares a
year to a person¡¯s life span from birth to death. However this Earth Wind & Fire top hit is different
in that it simply celebrates the month and a memory of finding love in September. ¡°Remember¡± it
says, ¡°how the stars stole the night away¡± and ¡°how we knew love was here to stay¡±. Put to some
fabulous music that makes you want to dance, it a fun and joyous celebration of love. Here¡¯s to
hoping you find yourself ¡°Dancing in September¡±!
Welcome to the September edition of The Sunshine Express! We wish you a very happy upcoming
Autumn season as the Fall Equinox arrives this month on the 23rd. With it comes many changes
from the awesome beauty of the changing Aspen leaves into gold to the colder more frigid and
longer nights as the snowy season begins to take hold. It often will snow in September, especially in
the high country, so get ready. We know the skiers are already in high anticipation. In the mean-
time, there are still plenty of fun and exciting events happening all around us that take advantage
of the almost perfect Colorado weather that September brings (before the snow flies). Of course,
you will find an abundance of options for you to choose from inside these pages this month. You will
also find some very good news on the science front with a major breakthrough in the semiconduc-
tor field. The story is featured on page 1. We wish you all a most excellent month and thank you for
your support. Keep smiling, we love you! - KingDaddy & Moonstruck

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.
