The way I see it is people are becoming educated with facts and real life experience. Hard to tell someone in College 'reefer madness' -Marijuana will fry your brains! - When professionals/parents & presidents admit to it. Science is showing Cannabis and how it eases chronic pain and helps with numerous other diseases. IT is much safer than Alcohol and less addictive or harmful than numerous other 'intoxicants' legal or illegal. The NOW generation is far from stupid.
I see Cannabis trials turning into compassion trials.
Changes & Challenges being made daily.
This Plant is not going away and I will tell you as a parent I would not be ashamed if my young adult told me of their use with cannabis - I'd much rather that then alcohol or chemicals. I would be proud that they came to an educated decision. Education is changing minds and bringing awareness. Generations are seeing how it is helping older and younger patients alike. If someone you love is using cannabis - put the negative stigma aside and thank God they have a safe option for helping ease their pain. That is all that should matter - ever.
Many times, several times a day something happens and a toon is triggered. Not everyone will find them funny. Not all cartoons are funny. This one made me smile. I got it. Staring into space is peace. Especially if you are lucky enough to do it on a beautiful day - looking at a calm and peaceful lake, spending time with someone you love - not saying a word.
I think that Scruffy is smarter than she lets on ;-)
It's a beautiful day outside and I'm hot so I'm in for a break, twitch break. Deciding to clean my office. I like it when it's clean. So do my girls - who hand out with me during the week - it can get crowded in here.
Boy oh boy am I glad we cancelled cable a couple of years now! We really spend time together and get stuff done. So not a work day but a day to clean up little stuff (always something) Norm does not like to sit or his shoulder gets sore and stiff - he hurt it a few weeks ago. To the point that we are giving serious consideration to -NO HALLOWEEN this year. Oh my gosh. My brain can not quite comprehend that - neither can Norm's.
But ... what do you do? I am cleaning my office , dreaming and drawing. My first official boat toon to be posted tomorrow. Drawn with TLC.
Found this one above - I love . I drew it in 2010. I had the studio and was teaching kids. I LOVED that. I miss them. Little creative beings - they inspire me very much- they don't give a poop! They taught me to love glitter all over again!
Anyhow I had it on the studio wall, I wanted to teach them T.V. in - ZOMBIE out.
I made them touch it & read it out loud. I also had a LB one to rub his belly for luck . I told Norm I wish I had the money I would open up a store. It sells affordble supplies and teaches kids art. ALL things art! One day ... One day I'll be able to open an entire art school and part of the program will be the kids have to travel and teach those less fortunate art! How cool would that be.
Think about it - we live our life visually. It is our eyes that see the words. Our eyes that see something that brings us to act. Many are illiterate - yet they get through life- I suck at spelling - I had to look up illiterate! LOL But ... what do you do? Do I stop because you sit there and judge me for my spelling . Nope.
You do what you must. Hopefully always with LOVE in your heart. It is easy for me to be angry - but I prefer to work daily at being nice. For me. It makes me feel better.
I hope they share this on FB. The message more important than Cannabis really.
Back to cleaning - happy to be cleaning. Happy to be breathing ;-D
For everyone that embraces this plant - has educated themselves on this plant and all it's GOODness - medicinal, Hemp, Oil, Food, building material and MORE- That continue to fight for this plant and our rights as humans - It's time for a group hug! I know how frustrating it can be, feeling like your banging your head against a brick wall, wondering is anyone listening???
So today I thought, let's take time for a group hug! Support each other, encourage and just celebrate the Plant! Thank each other! I feel it in the air change is around the corner!!
But for just today- Enjoy Cannabis and all it does and for all of us, millions around the world.
NOW that is a GROUP HUG!!
I love crafts! I do them all the time and with places like Pin - the ideas are flowing. I use to have a studio and taught crafts to kids for years and I miss it - so, I thought: Hey ! You have people who enjoy your drawing lessons - do a few craft lessons! So this is it my first! One a month! Key word 'Let's get crafty'!
I keep in mind cost! I want my crafts to be fun and affordable and once you do it - if you decide to take it up a knotch - that's up to you.
There is no limit to what your heart considers art.
JUST do it- there is no such thing as perfection. Let go, have fun and express yourself with art! This is my first idea- I am hoping to get a few magazines on board - it's not always about the bowl and the bong - it's about what Cannabis does for relaxing and being creative. Please send me your photos if you get crafty!
Fishing is so much more for me than the fish. LOL - I already giggle at that thinking Storm would say - Its all about the fish. My boy loves to fish! We went out yesterday - a BEAUTIFUL day on lake Simcoe! We were out from about 3 to sundown. We laugh, talk, have snacks.. Storm fishes and I draw and take photos ;-) I have had quite a bit on my mind the past couple of weeks. Stress higher than normal yet- to sit there on that boat. Forced to just sit and see and listen - it overtakes you and al I could see after only a short while was all the beauty God provides us to see all the time - we just have to remember to look.
When he first said he was getting a boat - I was a typical mom -- sigh.. oh, oh.. after yesterday watching him get it in and out of the water and taking me on a tour of lake Simcoe, I now think- Thank you! Thank you! I loved every second of yesterday - including the water splashing us - cause I think he was driving a little too fast! (lol) The photos are in order and our day ended perfectly! With a gorgeous sunset and a Bass to boot! Let go after the photo of course. I'm looking forward to our next boat adventure! xox <><
