Subject: Blog for David La Chapelle
Date: September 16, 2009
To: Large mailing list
This quick note goes out to you from Ananda Elise Foley, companion to David La Chapelle who passed away July 21, 2009 in Durango Colorado due to cancer. Please forgive my short note if you are hearing this news for the first time. If you are receiving this is it because your name is on a very large data base I created for David 6 years ago when I first began supporting his work
Im writing to invite you to visit a blogsite created for collecting thoughts, sentiments, memories, stories and photos celebrating David's life and contributions. As I used to write updates via emails; first with information about upcoming retreats and, later, about David's health; I have now switched my format of communication to the blog, where you may go online any time to check in and contribute if you like (reminder you can comment anonymously as well).
You are also being contacted to request your help in cleaning up my contact list of exactly 772 email addresses. My role and responsibilities are transitioning so enormously and quickly and I hope to be a crisp as possible contacting only people who wish to be. So please take the time to bounce an email back if you would prefer to be removed from my lists for announcements or from the database altogether. The blog will be an easy way to find me and relevant announcements in the future if you ever change your mind and wish to be added again.
From here I will be focusing on compiling much of David's artwork, as well as some collaboration offerings with my own work; his teachings and publications; photos and timelines to deepen the expression his work brought to the world. His website www.umya.com will be undergoing some construction and will remain a marketplace for these works.
Thank you for being a part of a dear, rich unfolding
...or sharing with us the care of your service, if you've been part of our lives thru business matters
In grateful heart,
