BIG DEEP LOVE & GRATITUDE
To the people that made "Regeneration" a reality. To my 3 grandmothers - how lucky am I! To my parents Rob & Beth Setrakian for, in a word, everything. To my big brother Nick for his demonstrative strength. To Mary Setrakian, my beloved coach. Maitreya Rose, I am forever grateful. To my friends for their endless encouragement especially Aria Sternik, Elke Schoen, Sierra Dierks, Molly Maguire, and Sophia Rose. To Lynn Bagley & her impeccable eye. To Finn! Thank you for clapping, dancing, and singing along regardless of the performance. Big thank you to Gary Ferroni, Adam Munos, and the team at Fantasy Studio. Big love to The Regenerative Design Institute. To Robin Livingston for your nourishing guidance and to Ethan Okamura! Thank you for your musical genius and mentorship. Our relationship has meant the world to me. Thank you Dick Bright, Katy Boyd, and all other guests on the album! Thank you Jeannie Vaughn! To the spinning Earth for her grace, abundance, and immense support. To the waters that nourish and cleanse the body, mind & soul of all living things. To the creatures and plants of the waters - the seaweed, salmon, dolphin, otter and whale. Thank you for reminding me to breath and sing my song! To the low growing plants: Thank you for embracing the earth and providing her creatures with sustenance in their daily journeys. To all creatures of the earth: fox, ant, wolf, mouse, dog, bear, lynx, squirrel, buffalo, skunk, deer, moose, antelope, on and on - I love you! Thank you for your silent wisdom and powerful medicine. Oh, to the wise old trees of the north: thank you for reminding me to sink my roots and reach for the sky - Balancing death and life so eloquently. And for providing a home for the birds, whom I love. To the chickadee, hawk, swan, owl, kite, crow, and all other air movers. Special thanks to the chicken, for your sacrifices. Butterfly, thank you for your courage. To the night's sky and crisp air, the moon, the stars, and the sun. To my grandfathers in the spirit world and to all my other ancestors. Thank you for marking my road with sweet signs of love and peace. To the yogis and teachers - the enlightened ones, the seasoned musicians. Thank you for sharing and living in your gift. To the future generations, thank you for coming! We need you! To the thunder beings, a question: if lightening was a creature - would it's hollow voice be thunder? To the great mystery...
To all those I have forgotten: My deepest thanks and blessings!
