I was up and at MaryHolme at 6:30 a.m. (still helping out there) - what a blessing it is just to be there (photo below)! Then I find out that I am going to the artist retreat!!! Sunday I leave my bags are packed! "Spiritual Growth Through Dreams, Art and Contemplation. This retreat invites you to pay attention with a contemplative spirit to your dreams and to play with them through art." How terrific does that sound! ?
I am so looking forward to it I nearly cried when I found out I was going, and to top it off- I know the COOK! LOL & she ROCKS! Can it get any better? So I will be OFF the comp for a week. No FB no, e mail nada! Me and my sketchbook! I am so excited and know that I will finally get those ideas out of my head and on paper. I have so many that I am frustrated.
Came home and my company soon arrived around 11 this a.m. Laurentine and her mom! Lauren is also a medical Cannabis patient. I enjoyed her company and her moms and so did Storm and we had several laughs. Talked about Volcanos, cookies and life. I look forward to spending more time together. When they left I can tell you I felt stronger, on several levels. More determined and thanked God for reminding me why I am on this path. For Love.
I decided to have a contest on FB to promote the more serious side of The Happy Hippie. The new Cultivating Compassion fan page on FB where I will also post good reads. If this medicine can help our children, mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles.. the time is now, they have to know they have an option to pain medication other than prescribed medication. One that still allows them to have a quality of life and function! To thrive! TO HAVE FUN.
Tomorrow I get to go spend time with the Gentleman of Cannabis - Marco. Who has always been nothing but a gentleman to me. I have a toon to thank him for the amazing Treating Yourself EXPO, and original from Josh and I - OH!- The Green Reefer - he's coming back! He has had such a great time here is Canada and he is a wonderful house guest - cut the grass and did dishes! LOL How many people can say that about their comic super hero. He is a great guy and we look forward to having him around a couple of more days. See what I mean - what a great day! From beginning to end! Time to draw think about what I'm packing for my RETREAT!! I will still add a few Treating yourself blogs about the EXPO and will tag them so if you want to check for new info that is where it will be. Below.. I was greeted by a dragon fly and bumble bee at the door so early in the morning at the house I will be staying for my retreat. Overlooking the lake - can't wait to create! I will be sure to post about it after.
