'Hey beautiful, you will be on SKUNKs poster of our most prominent canna women warriors. '
How awesome! Skunk Magazine - I met John at the first EXPO - you don't really get to talk to anyone because you are so busy, John and I over the years slowly - got to know each other a bit. lol More like passing shouts! Skunk is a magazine 'Georgia Toons' is not in -
I'm not sure why at this point! LOL I am confident to say - If I asked John to print a comic he would! ;) It is nice to have friends in High places! ;)
BTW - I just saw on the skunk page they have a contest for 2 to go to Jamaica!
Check it out. I am going to enter!!
So when John contacted me... YES! I am pleased.
Thankful my work is recognized. Appreciated.
BUT* Storm and I talked about this and I have decided to share...
A couple of years back when Skunk did the women warriors - a couple of people contacted me asking - 'why was I not chosen.' I did not know. I will honestly tell you - then - yes, my nose was out of joint for a bit. lol -Because, I felt I was trying 'so hard' - why, was I not chosen? Storm too at the time was upset. THIS is important. A lesson learned.
So many activist - especially women - (I am woman hear me roar! ) work endlessly, trying to educate and promote cannabis use. They go out, shout and repeat over and over the benefits of cannabis, moms now all over - trying to get her children some help - many have to move!! Can you imagine. They never get recognition!! In fact - all they might get is scowls, and attitude from those that do not believe or understand.
IT does not matter. Let it go and keep on truckin'!
Yes, THANK you for making me a women warrior - but I don't 'need' it anymore.
I know who I am and what I do - we do what we do because we feel we must do it!
I started out trying to educate for my own son. For LOVE I do what I do.
At the time a while back- I felt defeated...
Imagine 'IF' I had let it really get to me. Had stopped drawing... I considered it.
Why was I not 'acknowledged'. I use to have several days where I thought to myself - Is anyone paying attention? Does anyone care?
It is nice to be acknowledged... but it is not what it is about.
I am thankful, and it was nice to hear from John - who himself has dealt with much.
Many issues I am sure we don't even realize. He is a warrior.
That too - Please let it be known 'If' I am a warrior - in the WAR - I don't want to be known for adding hate, anger or more aggression - but hope to educate with LOVE - peacefully.
I'm not one for war.
For all those that do NOT get recognized! KEEP going! IT does NOT matter!
Do what you do out of LOVE and you will not fail!
BE A WARRIOR! ;) and send out loving vibes and help change minds by educating and perhaps making people smile along the way.
Are you awake?
Paying attention to life or the T.V.?
A Sheep or asleep? ;)
The choice is yours.
