After our bird adventure, we had a lovely BBQ and then Storm took me to this years LIFT EXPO. It's really changed and the businesses - WOW! Get ready Canada- there is so many new cannabis businesses it's going to exciting and curious times. It was terrific to see the friends we've made over the years (got caught up on many hugs) Storm and I had many laughs (as always) thinking about some past moments as well. In all honesty I saw some faces who I've interacted with in the past and thought to myself.. Naaa - it is time to move on. In general - I don't know that I'll attend another cannabis expo, it is what it is.. stuff, cannabis business. I love to paint and educate about cannabis - I'm content doing my own thing.
Lot's of discussion about cannabis being legal VERY SOON Canada and how there will be a shortage, the Government won't be able to keep up with demand is the expected outcome... and that will be bad for business. I'm not concerned - I won't be buying my cannabis from the Government. I would buy 'if I had to from a individual dispensary actually - to show my support. I have friends in high places and have incredible cannabis to smoke always - better than friends... I have my son.
The word is out - the cat out of the bag.. I witnessed it yesterday with my own eyes.. several people came up to Storm and 'congratulated him. Storm has been officially hired as a lead cannabis consultant & is working with some who are very big, already established & incredibly talented in the industry. It is comforting I know he is surrounded by very knowledgable, experienced, successful friends - an amazing bunch - friends he has had now for over a decade already. EVERYthing for a reason!
Am I Proud? Fucking right I am!!! We know this journey- Storm has continually risen above, even in areas where I still struggle - like attitudes of others -he just ignores, forgives and keeps focused - it's how he got to where he is NOW. I have been blessed to experience cannabis from ALL over the world now- and it is something to be able to say "My son is growing some of the best!" & I'm obviously not the only one who knows it.
***BUT... yep the time has come, Storm moved out.
Did I cry? Hell yes! & still do from time to time - lol - I MISS HIM! We all miss him.
We've already visited a couple of times and Daisy will be living in the city & here part time - he misses his doggen and she him. His apartment is perfect, it has a guest room for when Poppy & I visit! Hee Hee - We've got some city plans this summer for sure!
Where does the journey go from here - That's all up to Storm.
The first time driving back from his apartment- I cried all the way home... it hit me -
he's left & I doubt he'll ever return 'full-time' he has returned already to do his laundry- lol... and I realized as clear as this beautiful day before me now :
Anyone who doubts God has a plan for each one of us from the very start
- doubt more.
Who better than to grow his own life saving medicine than Storm? & he has grown some incredible medicine for his mom too - to help with my brain pain.
Of course he is going to produce INCREDIBLE cannabis - INSPIRED BY LOVE...
you can not fail & he is gong to help many do the semaphore themselves!
I thank God for Storm & Cannabis EVERY day.
Now it's time to show my appreciation & love by getting back to painting.
