Still dealing with feeling more tired than usual, I've been taking it easy but not feeling like physically crafting/painting as much, * mentally I still do. I'm happy to report as soon as I finish this entry - the paint is going to hit the saw blade! The mini blade to be won by someone!
Soon a new work of art - I'm excited, a new piece in mind called: 'Passerine Queen Flora'!
Also on my mind... Poppy.
Rather than allowing myself to get frustraited about how some 'see Poppy' - until they do I will continue to educate. Teach Only Love.
This is not an easy task - think, think, think...
Well! I have been taking Poppy with me to Shoppers Drugmart, easily a year, and they never have even made mention. On our last visit she did have on her 'new vest' & was noticed and got a few more smiles but thankfully, no attention.
She also must get use to her new position. "woot, woot" I am writing them a thank you card "Georgia Toons" style! and delivering it on Friday when I mail out my next batch.
I have a couple of other places as well!
The reason for this is I have had issues, leaving me feeling depressed about not being able to get out. It does not take much... I can admit, to keep me from going out.
I feel a strange sense of power with this little creature that cares for me & looks our for me. - and IF she was a big dog - no one would even question me. ;( What is with people. Wait until you see the first idea we are working on! More On Poppy tomorrow - It's national Service dog month!!!
My friend Todd Stimson wrote me from jail.
If you knew Todd like I know Todd- your heart would break a little.. Todd wrote he had to physically defend himself. Bloodied hands. Todd is the sort of guy who would not start a fight, he probably would not have to resort for violence - he is thoughtful, charming and I feel naturally - a lover, not a fighter. I am sure Kerry his lovely wife would agree. & THAT is what JAIL does not non-violent offenders.
Being beaten down, mentally & physically for growing plants. PLANTS. On top of this he misses both his daughters so bad, I can feel his tears in his letters.
For what? Plants.
Good News.. another court case was won.
Cannabis is a medicine recognized in this country by the Supreme Court of Canada!
Not only are we now 'legally' permitted to eat our medicine - I've no doubts in my mind
Seriously ill patients permitted to grow their medicine will be able to continue to do so.
Thank God, I know several people who were truly talking about ending their lives. People who do not want to take drugs that cause them to feel worse than the actual disease killing them! If you leaned about serious opiates - you would prefer more people used Cannabis. So many reasons. TRY! Learn! Research!
Turn off the tube and turn on your mind! ;)
People who hunt to hunt. Big Game. I saw the bear video circulating on the internet, I did not know what I was watching until it was already started and it was disgusting. YES, I am making a judgement call.. COLD, nasty, senseless, cruel murder of an innocent creature.
Do you know the numbers of animals left remaining on this planet that we destroy.
For what? NOT the meat. Not for necessity... For a HEAD on a wall.
It is a level of selfishness unlike any other. I don't know what to do about it, do you?
I feel though the tides are turning against such actions, and the hunters will become the hunted if not careful. Some comments I have read on these stories make me realize there are people out there as passionate against big game killing as we are about our own lives.
Drawing about this today. I woke up with it on my mind.
Check out what this woman is doing: http://www.fear-project.com
AWESOME! What are you afraid of?
I submitted an entry. I think she is saving minds and lives, really.
That's all for now.. time to PAINT that mini saw blade!
Tomorrow a blog on Poppy
Saturday - I will post the mini saw blade and then leave it a few days - enough time for a few to enter if they wish. Tuesday the 22nd- in honour of Storms 23- I will give a gift to a stranger!
