    Hello Shine!
    Many Blessings Bro!
    I am soo excited for this album, It has been a few years since you have released something to inspire us. Are you intending to tour this summer? Just wondering if the winds will blow you north? If you are, I will happily anchor an event in the Cariboo. It sometimes blows my mind to realize that your initial inspiration for me to begin playing was over 15 years ago! Keep Loving and Shining like the Sun! You do it so graciously <3
    Love Chanti

    Hey Shine,

    FYI: there is an international crowdsourcing website called to raise $ for good causes. you set gift levels for the level of contribution. I am going to be using this site to raise $ for a medical devices start-up–but as you can see at the site, people also use it to help pay for personal challenges, such as the musician raising $ to pay for medical bills

    He hoped to raise $17K but raised over $48K!!!

    Hope this helps Shine.

    I had the pleasure of meeting you at One Big Tree and receiving the gift of your album. I was truly touched and I am very much enjoying it. I am in Vancouver, and as you had mentioned perhaps you would have time to overlap. Please let me know via email if you have any time in the coming days- it would be amazing to follow up.

    Blessings and gratitude.
