Hi Sheila - I'm wondering what is the best way to contact you.  I'm digital marketing director at The Snorkel Store in Maui, and I am inspired by your work.  I have a few questions about how you make choices for content.  Do you have a preferred method of communications for something like this?  
Thanks!
Jeremy
