Friend of the store and creator of The Voyager Tarot, James Wanless is in the hospital, with a long recovery ahead of him. Please join us in holding him in our hearts. A GoFundMe campaign has been set up and we invite you to contribute if you are able and are called to do so.
This is the latest news from Julie King, James Wanless' business partner and longtime friend:
"James has been moved to a rehab facility and his daughter Leaf facetimed him last night and he was smiling, gave a thumbs up and tried to talk! This is awesome. He has a long recovery and is making progress! Thank you all for the donations and support. It might be good if anyone would like to send a card to him at the rehab. This will cheer him up and let the staff know that he is loved by many. Visits are still too early and the facility has very few appointments for visits (Covid protocols in Place), but I will be letting you know when visits are possible."
Cards can go to:
Studio City Rehabilitation,
Room 44B,11429 Ventura Blvd.
Studio City, CA 91604
Thank you again for all of your support!
On August 13th, friend of the store and creator of The Voyager Tarot, James Wanless was randomly assaulted outside his apartment in Los Angeles. He is in the hospital, with a long recovery road ahead of him. All of us at Paradise Found and in James' Santa Barbara community are holding him in our hearts.
We are so grateful for the many years of programming and readings that James offered through Paradise Found. We trust that his enormous zest for life, boundless energy and huge heart will carry him through this most recent setback. We know that if anyone knows how to navigate a severe setback it is James Wanless, Master of the “Kaka” Cards. We look forward to welcoming back a fully recovered James for more fun-filled and inspiring evening romps through the tarot.
