One night Storm and I walking back from the hard rock we both had mentioned how much we missed Michelle. Just the presence of Michelle. We knew her briefly compared to most so I am sure we were not the only ones thinking about her. I heard that a friend won the Michelle Rainey award! - I do not know the details (will find out more) - I am sure it is an award for cannabis awareness and compassion beyond what others only speak about. Al who is P.A.C.E is another hard working gentleman, as is his wife and his good friend Mike. I really enjoy when I see them and look forward to our talks. I am learning the EXPO is not the place for that to happen. So once again I am inspired by Michelle... and continue to draw for change.
Also missing Marc Emery.
His giant banner and his t-shirts and buttons and beautiful wife Jodie all there. All there for Marc. I have never met the man, but with most things I try to do a little research -I have educated myself to know that he is a very determined and educated man with strong opinions and is not afraid of making waves for what he believes in. For that I admire anyone. I told Jodie, it was a moment when I am normally a very proud Canadian... I was a little ashamed. I cannot believe that we (as a Country) sent Marc to the U.S.A and for what - in all reality .. A PLANT. A PLANT grown from a seed planted originally here by GOD. I shake my head just thinking about it.
You never know what tomorrow may bring! It may bring Marc home. AT least back to Canada to serve the remaining time. It is cruel and unusual punishment to be taken so far away. I also told Jodie I saw a documentary about Jack Herer, he created his best work in jail! The Emperor wears no clothes. http://www.jackherer.com/thebook/chapter-two
I can only imagine with Marc will come out with. That and a wicked guitar Duo coming up with Tommy Chong! ;-))) I am excited about that.
Well, I think that was the only thing about the EXPO that I felt was missing ... of course Jack.. but we know people leave us, some we will never forget or stop missing.. for me it will be Michelle.
Tomorrow... ladies of the EXPO!
