Yesterday I did a radio interview about medical Cannabis. I was asked a few months ago and thought what a great way to start off my new year. It is one thing to draw but sometimes we have to speak. I had a conversation with someone not long ago and I said to her.. "people don't get it - they don't know what's its really like.." Her reply "Because you don't tell them what it is really like. How can they know?" I can sit and write - alone in my studio, I can sit and draw, think, cry & giggle - get it out of my system and on paper. I can not talk about some things that are too painful. I can NOT think too long on things that are painful. Instead I force myself to think of more positive things and how I can possibly make a difference. I will from time talk about it If I am asked - how can I not?
During the interview the woman mentioned that she has a friend with a little girl with cancer and I was reminded ONCE again (not that I don't think about it daily) of exactly what it is I am doing. I meant every word I said. I promised myself a long time ago when I started this blog the truth will set me free. When you believe in something it is easy to speak the truth. I want to ease suffering, at first it was just for children, now it goes beyond. Suffering from pain with a plant and suffering from prison for a plant. If you want to listen the radio interview is here:http://soundcloud.com/smokiek/420radio_wthc28 I'm 1/2 through at about 55. but if you can listen to it all, the gentleman before me also had some very important things to say, and you will see just with us two - the same thing - 'you start to get angry.' The more you learn the angrier you get. Angry enough to do something about it. During that interview I was also asked about something else... the cat is, as you say - out of the bag. Although if you have been watching my strip very carefully you may have noticed something- but that's for another blah blah blog... I'll save it for Sunday. xox <><
