Need I say more?
What a Day!!
I stayed up till 3a.m. painting then remembered I had a meeting this morning to discuss a new product I'm working on with someone.. I heard a strange noise on my radio - an amber alert for a little girl, from what I gather someone stole a car and the child was in the back seat- a 4 year old little girl- how terrifying, my heart sank. The WONDERFUL news was she was discovered unharmed!!! Really, the best news of the day.
Next, I had a meeting- I've signed a confidentiality disclosure, this product will change the world for the better for pets. Tis true!!! Enough said - and I had some CRAZY CREATIVE FUN!! YEEE!!! My enthusiasm also evident in my work. I predict you will see it on a shelf in every quality pet store sooner than we realize! :)
After my meeting I read my mail to find out Mark & Jodie Emery have been arrested at the airport on the way to Spannabis - several charges. I don’t have FB! (I actually logged on for a second but thought - do I need this and got OFF) I know only what I read on the CBC & comments:http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/marc-and-jodie-emery-court-1.4019001
I blogged about this months back, who did not see this coming? Clearly Mark & Jodie on the way to Spain. *stuck here in Canada in a blizzard with the rest of us. Mark ore or less openly said ‘Look at me! - I’m selling cannabis- even though I KNOW it’s not ‘legal’ yet. Come get me’… and they did.
For this he has even received ‘criticism from some in the community who have & and are trying to play by the rules. I don’t know how else to put it. I hope it’s not true, Mark could be deported back to the U.S., I din’t think they could do it the first time. As for Jodie, I pray she does not have to go to jail! I don’t think she would do well in jail. I really cannot see her going to jail. Either of them with legalization around the corner. Literally. What were they thinking, do they need this kind of stress - that being said..
Do I need the stress?
I cannot remember the last time Norm and I got ‘along.
All we do and have done for years is argue. The toll it is physically taking on my body now is enough, every argument’ I see patches of psoriasis appear, little red dots at first they easily get out of control. Every argument also triggers my ‘twitch’ and raises it on a scale of 1 to 10 to a 17… yet, they continue to happen.
I am searching currently online but can’t find anything.. so far ‘Moncton looks affordable’, lol - (not kidding), which is fine as I have no ties here, love the water and would LOVE to live near a beach or at least get to one every now and then. I LOVE SEA glass and cactus (yes, I realize I’m stretching on the cactus - I just do). For me and my girls and son should he choose to visit, he too has been thinking of leaving the nest. :) As soon as I find a new home to call my own, I start a new chapter. Amen.
That being said my mind is thinking WTF? Between the USA last week and now this, Mark & Jodie must appear in court ‘April-21’ (missed it by a day… 4/20).-. Perhaps a judge will ‘toss it’… or not. Trying to come up with a cartoon. Had they waited they would have still cornered the market. They will get attention, The added stress won't be good. I’m sure they discussed the possibilities of being arrested, they will have top lawyers no doubts.
I know the community will rally for them on 4/21.
My son is at Spannabis, he was invited to go with friends, last minute. He tells me ‘it’s hot and he’s happy to be enjoying ‘Sangria & Tapas! I am thrilled for him. I told him - HAVE FUN, he’ll be back and in this weather before he knows it.
Candice is there as well! Best TIPS ;) :http://www.quintessentialtips.com
Had I known, I would have been there! NEXT year for Sho!
Rob said he’d show too, perhaps I’ll finally get to see that cannabus.
Time to paint!
I love night painting. hee hee - I love all painting.
I might have to checkout FB for toon inspiration.. we'll see.
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength,
while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
~ Lao Tzu
Love is... I have no flicking clue. I don't.
I feel like I'm not so sure what 'Love is' at all. I wonder at this stage in my life 'IF' I will ever know "love like that" again... & I wonder if is the twitch or is it me. Some days it becomes exhausting and I have to stop. Stop even thinking of love.
I'm not alone.
I 'think' I express my love many times only to have it not returned & even rejected - lol. Welcome to the world. We are all loved and rejected by someone at some point in our lives. My only advice there, is let go.. what is the point. Hanging onto someone who does not like/love you in not good for your care.- you are limiting yourself to the universe to find a love that desires & deserves.
To have someone 'special" is love - but there is so much more to love. Here is an interesting read on love. I enjoyed:
That 90-second conversation you had with the stranger this morning while walking your dog? If there was eye contact, a sense of connection, and mutual respect — that’s love. Whenever we exchange smiles or friendly gestures with strangers, or take a little extra time to have warm exchanges with people we see every day, those “micro-moments of positivity” change us at the biological level
Love is every where: http://www.care2.com/greenliving/love-is-everywhere.html
These bears come from 'no where'. They did not start out as love- I was feeling very doleful when I decided to "paint something!" No sketch and quite often NO idea on what I am going to draw. Slowly, I become immersed in it, I want to get the positioning just right, I imagine her smiling down into his face- I have to pretend in my mind to get a successful drawing. Soon I find myself smiling down at the painting. Do what you love.
I had to laugh out loud when painting this.. Storm walks in my office and asked me - "Are those bears doing it?" in the tone of- "are you painting porn?" LOL! I said - "They are hugging! & what if they are, two adult bears?" After he left my office I had a new appreciation from my bears and a giggle- clearly, I have been able to achieve expressing an emotion - I still do feel inside. Love.
If you are alone this Valentines day.. use your imagination. Daydream.
You will feel the love start to grow.. make it happen. Make love about that smile you share with a stranger.. forget 'who you are to love" and continue to do what you love.
& IF all else fails- THROW yourself into your work- mine happens to be drawing about love this month. Hahahaha
'I love you' in the sense I care for all humans.. but I do love a few human in particular!
I plan on showing them with a tiny little valentine! hee hee
Just like I have shown all of you my love- by sharing here today!

Cut, Color & Convey your love! Tell someone or leave it anonymously... let someone anyone know they are loved or at the very least - appreciated!
Simply, Print the cards. *I HIGHLY reccomend gluing the sheet of paper onto a card stock or thin piece of cardboard- the type from a cereal box works best! Recycle! Glue, leave overnight to dry- then COLOR! I love this part. Cut down the middle and in-between each card, write a tiny note on the back and deliver!
Either by hand or mail if you glued it to a cardboard stock- no problems!
You see I made a sample below- mailing it out-- who will get it?

Want to discover what went into making this?
How to be a cartoonist? Slide show:
A 'Dream Team'.. for me anyhow! Two icons brought together over cannabis - finally!
Dab... or Dab not. There is no try.
I giggled painting this. Yoda - in the moment, E.T., slightly anxious. Hee Hee Hee!
I can't describe you how this original 'POPS off' the paper & the night sky turned out better than I imagined. Hang in my office, it will.
Did you grow up with Yoda & E.T? For research- I watched E.T again!
Wow. It was terrific, a flashback into time.. just to see Drew Barrymore is worth the watch.
May the force be with us in our never ending quest to educate all life forms regarding Cannabis and its healing properties.
I sent this image to a friend this morning stating it was 'us', he is Yoda...
I see a resemblance in the hair. hee hee hee
The places my mind goes! Medicate and educate. Give Thanks!
This is me HIGH.. painting E.T. & Yoda.
Cannabis is a safe medicine.

I enjoyed making them- it brought back memories and I know will make some new ones!
Dab or Dab not. There is no try. lol
I love Yoda! I also am a fan of cannabis. Try it all, in all ways do.
Edibles, smoked, drinkable, baked, candies, rolled, hash, oil.
Cannabis comes in many forms and I don't see this changing anytime soon.
Actually, my son who explains everything to me, my "Yoda" explained Dabbing’ as he does whenever I ask - or I'm on google for hours. This way I'm at least pointed in the right correct direction. I've had people offer dabs for a while and I tried off and on.
Better knows as cannabis OIL ... concentrate. There are several ways it seems to obtain it, in slightly varying forms. It also goes by the names of shatter, resin, dabs, oil, BHO, Honey Oil, CO2 Oil… etc. I find it astonishing. I have experienced some very clean dabs and the high" was - refreshing.
I like dabs & I like Yoda - *he was not created by Jim Henson, like I thought.. http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Stuart_Freeborn - many make this mistake. Go have a peek- he looks like his creator. Yes, this qualifies as a love post, I have a couple Yodas in in my office. As you can see. I love this little green wise guy.
Do or Do Not. There is No try. ~Yoda.
Dab or Dab Not... There is no try. lol
High, stoned- again there are those words - I try to avoid, simply still because of he negative stigma they hold & not words I associate with Cannabis oil... relaxed, clear headed, creative, energized, refreshed, peaceful & positive.
I’ve had restful sleeps the last few evenings - awake at 5 ready to paint!
A smile on my face - I’m up before everyone including Bird.
Do what you love.
Do or Do not. There is no try.
Let's fall in love.
Let's fall in love!! No, NOT with a person but with what you do!
Love what you do! & the rest will follow.
Make yourself happy and it will shine out of every pore & more. lol
This month along with sharing LOVE & cannabis in every drawing I'm going to share some of the people in my life who I care for, am inspired by, love, like and including those who put love into the world for others. Either for whom they 'are' or what they do, making a difference for millions or one. Who cares... Making a difference is all that matters.
Today, I share another cartoonist friend (with many talents) Ivan Art, he make a difference every day! Ivan & his wife Simone - a creative couple inspiring others around them in Switzerland as well as reaching the masses through their art. Awesome.
Love is grand.
It's float time for Ivan! Ora, io non parlo italiano, mi dispiace sto solo scherzando ora utilizzando Google Translate, obiettivo-ha un ascolto o guardare e si vedrà Ivan 1/2 attraverso il video! Educare Migliaia lungo il sentiero percorso parata & cannabis!
Speaking of Do what you love... I have a NEW EASEL - I did what I loved!
Today I'lll be putting it to good use. Woot Woot!! Time for some acrylic paint.
The foxes are my imagined couples just meeting perhaps for the first time..
in the field of love.
Tomorrow: LOVE in the form of 'flowers'
