A Tiny Terrapin Jerry Turtle Tribute.
I want to thank the gentleman from Ancient Aliens - with the great hair, who wears custom glass pendants! Giorgio - I should look him up, maybe he is in California... I could listen to him for hours. ;) He amuses me and I want to paint him. Georgia & Giorgio! Sound like FUN! How he said " WE are Stardust!" was inspiring - you want to talk fate- later in the evening Norm watched the same episode (I can't hear it in my studio with my radio playing) as I walked downstairs to get a tea with lilac syrup... there he was again saying the exact same thing! I woke up today and painted at 5. ALIVE!
I've been invited to California! Poppy too.. lol Thank you Stardust.
I have friends all over the world who e mail me regular! <3
THANK YOU fellow Stardust!
My son loves me more than the entire Universe! He's told me many times.
I have it in writing too... lol . He is stardust and surrounded by stardust!
WE are STARDUST! ;)
It hit me - WHAM!!! :
I want to see a cannabis field - and lay in it - UNDER the stars!!
Inspired for future bears!
E me - I'll barter ART.
Stuff to do! I'm off today to buy Poppy 'Sherpa for her first plane ride!!
I Am Blessed. What does this mean?
Did I win the lottery? Have I gone through life unscathed? No & no.
Am I gifted- yes, we all are. I've really tried to focus on mine & will continue to do so as long as I am able - it is also my passion. There are several issues I'm dealing with currently, not easy... still I am blessed.
I am blessed because I have faith in God. With it comes strength, power & peace.
The most important PEACE, imo.
Peace of my own mind- which allows me to fall asleep faster than Poppy most nights.
I will give you a perfect example of when I felt blessed this past week, there have been several... I started painting the Bear Pondering' on the log but had to go to the Dr.s - driving home, I informed Storm, "I need a vacation." lol He is aware.
I came home to an E mail I had to think about- it was perfect- I had to paint Bear Pondering! Ponder- I did.. the next day- almost complete I had to leave my office again for a couple of hours- diner- etc.. frustrated - I went back into my office to finish bear pondering and as I glanced at my desk- Bear had this streak of natural sunlight fall across the paper - exactly 'on her'- Better than I could have painted and it was a warm ray exactly where it needed to be. I am exactly where I need to be at this point.
I smiled instantly, seeing that bear in that light - it' made me feel blessed.
That is all it took, a gentle reminder. All that was frustrating me was gone.
As if a gentle reminder - enjoy the moment.
Ponder no more... painting complete.
That vacation I was mentioning to my son... Poppy & I have been invited to California!!!
It was the first email after we arrived home. OCEAN, see glass, dinner, entertainment, our own room & bathroom, pool... 'Chi Capital' Poppy might get her big movie star break!?
What's there to ponder bear?
It's a long weekend here! So much to do! Play safe!!
How early did you have your first sip? Come on' it's just us... tell the truth.
Mine could have been earlier, I don't remember. Chances are, it was.
I do remember getting drunk at 15 on 'Screwdrivers' with my older boyfriend 'Ken. Marintette'. I was returned home after a work Christmas party - Wooo Hooo, Ho Ho Ho! The next day my step dad informed me: I threw up in the closet & passed out on the living room sofa. He looked after me, helped washed the vomit out of my hair, made me food to eat and gave me 'lots of liquids. My mom took photos and was too pissed to speak to me. lol I still remember the photo. Billy was a hang over expert. Much experience
That's it. WE are our kids 'Gate Keepers", what do they see us Doing? Drinking? Saying?
My step dad arrived in my life in my early teens, he was a good man who drank way TOO MUCH every day until he became ill, I had already witnessed my share of drinking before he came along, growing up my mom & all family (with the exception of an aunt) drank.
My grandma drank 'black velvet', she lived directly across from the once famous "Oakwood Hotel"... Even then watching the adults 'ENTER' 'all dressed for the evening of drinking & dancing' & I couldn't wait!! This was always followed by watching an evening of drunks falling down & out the 'EXIT' OR being thrown out! OR a fight in the back of the Oakwood was a very common event.
Alcohol.. in one was or another, I was CONSTANTLY exposed to it.
Since before my birth. It is WORSE now for children.
Turn on the T.V. or it's delivered to our mailbox in a lovely HIGH GLOSS magazine right from the LCBO, and is often in our newspapers - wait for the summer fliers! I wonder what NEW drinks await. How man NEW flavours will be introduced to the market? Cheers!
This idea came from the BOMBAY RECALL.. well not really- I was lying in bed '3.p.m. refresher' and thought 'I can't think of this! What do you want me to think about?!'
The image was in my mind instantly. Exactly as you see it.
No more thought needed 'I passed out cold. lol
After all that hard work - I was exhausted.
How many people were effected & did not even realize it? Car Accidents?
Physical accidents? How many pregnant moms said - 'I'm going to have just a couple.., what damage does a 'couple do? IT does effect the baby.
DON'T be selfish, DO NOT DRINK when pregnant.
The baby has NO CHOICE, do NOT force it to drink.
Use a little cannabis IF you must... Best of all- use Nothing at all.
Each little life deserves the best possible start.
Only the best bud for my little bud.
Hand picked, dried & trimmed with TLC & THC.
Imagine the education kids will get when parents can grow a plant and teach them all about it, taste it fresh - toss a bit in a salad! Will children like the taste of fresh cannabis bud?
It won't kill them to eat it & they won't get high. Hmmmphh.
Maybe they won't like it- it's kinda 'peppery tasting imo' and just like broccoli - will they avoid it when ever they can - until they become adults and understand broccoli is good for us & quite tasty.
Time will tell.
Georgia... On My Mind.
