Feel like getting HIGH?
Don't know why?
Thinking about feeling fine?
Cannabis on the mind?
It is a natural desire to want to feel high- why do you think little kids 'spin?
Animals get high intentionally all the time.
Research is being done into how natural medicines, while getting us "high" actually could be protecting the brain- even rewiring it.
People have been trying to get high since the beginning of time- it's only NATURAL.
A God given right .

Don't believe me? Prove me wrong.. do some research.
So don't feel bad for wanting to get HIGH.. soon you will be able to experience cannabis comfortably, affordably and get high- safer than alcohol.. research.
Who I think is the King of 'American Dispensaries'... so far? More soon.
Do you know of any?
This octopus is a work in progress- just like me. Us.
His tangled legs force me to focus as they twist and get lost in each other..
You will like him- He is very cannabis friendly.
I've discovered, I paint octopus when I'm dealing with something I really need to process.
On my mind.. California.
I KNOW why I was to go. A test to myself.
Sitting on the beach, long walks with Poppy & a lot of alone time.
Painting time. I felt physically better. It was not just the weather.
It was many things, I didn't do much or go many places. My friend was a vegetarian so in many cases that's what I had also & have to say I've not had meat since. Really! I've no desire for it. As you might imagine I'm cooking without it - so all around everyone is eating less meat or they don't eat- or get takeout. Not my problem. Less Pig for sure.
I'm looking after myself and cook what I feel is best for this bod & mind.
I am not saying I won't eat meat again, I will saver the experience' and not just eat it to eat it
- a beast had to die for it.
A new CALM appears to have kicked in.. thank you California.
I'm giving all I have to think about to what I do want. Calm, Love, Peace.
I know exactly what I need. I've thought about it for years.
Bring it on! I work for it... isn't anything worth having even better if you work for it?
My body is a temple.. not suitable for poison in any form.
Plant, animal, chemical or human.
Since home & medicating properly I'm noticing a huge improvement again back to focusing and painting. I have had much time to process my California experience. It appears my friend I visited is no longer communicating with me.. he was disappointed and verbally expressed this to me a couple of days after my arrival - it wasn't going as he expected. Too bad. Even though honourable intentions were expressed before the vacation things changed, so did the dynamics of my vacation- but this was o.k.- it forced me and Poppy to have a lot of alone time - thinking and crab watching.
I was upset at the time but later I laughed with Storm and said "what can I say -Your Mama is just too damn desirable!!"
Boundaries were made clear before I even left. It went as I expected. I had no misconceptions of what my vacation was going to be - a vacation. Cest la vie- I've made several attempts to continue our friendship. Do I feel bad - no. I've done nothing wrong. I'm not making any apologies for others behaviours any longer.
It's sad though.. a friend lost- why- a hurt EGO. Men.
Arrrrrgh. What ever, I walk away - held held HIGH.
My body is a temple, I have no intentions/need of being 'intimate' just for the sake of a F*ck. At the age of 53 - it's nice to be strong enough not to cave to OTHERS desires if I'm not feeling them myself. How many times do women in particular do this? Too many.
The dogs missed me & Bird had me concerned... he really missed me.
Next vacation I might smuggle him with me! lol Joking.
Next vacation - I am going alone... I made up my mind.
Not one single thing to worry about but me... up in the mountains on a peaceful county side.
From this day forward Everything that goes into this body will be deserving.
Just as I AM.
What will you place in your body today? Is it good For YOU? Mentally & physically?
Will it nourish or just fill you up with junk that will only make you ill in the long run.
Think about it - with every nibble.
Back to this tangled green Cananbis love.
Pop Rocks! I called her 'Poppo' on vacation. Poppy is the cutest, behaved little dog proving me with a service of LOVE & Protection in 7lbs of fierce! She will take your finger (tip) off if you don't watch out! lol
She actually is not aggressive at all- unless she feels she needs to protect me.
She keeps me from taking harmful chemicals. Fact.
I will fight for Poppy like she fights for me, make no mistakes.
Keeping me natural like my medicine. Thank God.
I know some can't understand what Poppy does- it's not for you to understand.
She brings me peace... and our trip to California - she proved what a little rockstar she is!
Every Flight- she walked ahead on the plane with me towing my bag behind - Hooked to my belt so I am 'hands free'. EVERYone looked at her in amazement with many Awwwwwssssssss and giggles - I'd say "here it is" (meaning our seat ) and she jumped up! Then I'd buckle up and she lay on my lap - I'd cover her with her blanket and that was that, she never made a peep! Every time! 3 flights - hee hee - I'm going to put flight pins on her vest & EVERY single time I had flight attendants remark- "I forgot she was on the flight" & "she is by far the best service dog we've had!"
California was awesome! Poppy went to the movies & had many patio meals and went to the Getty!! I only had a couple of incidents with humans.. one customer in a 'subway' gave me such a dirty look and shook his head at 'us.. he did it to me 3 times! I was in line behind him holding Poppy, I lost my appetite. I said I wasn't hungry and would wait outside... when the gentleman emerged I look at him straight in the eye and calmly asked:
"Do you feel better passing judgement on me and you don't know anything about me?"
He stopped (caught off guard) "I wasn't judging you... I was frustrated at.. the woman behind the counter"
"Bullshit" was my reply.
He calked his head back and says "well o.k., but.. come on & I love dogs but really? "
He reached out to Poppy but she turned her head & ignored him (awesome)
"YOU judged me and you know nothing about me."
Who was he to look at me and shake his head in disgust... I was NOT harming anyone. Poppy was Not harming anyone. I was holding her.. she is cleaner than most construction workers in there for lunch.
He looked at me and said "I did."
I looked at him and said "enjoy your lunch.."
He walked away. Food for belly & mind - I hope.
God was with me. I knew what to say, calmly.
What is with people - Holy! Are there not more serious things to focus on right now- like TRUMP?? I get it if a dog is misbehaving but I feel like we are constantly paying for it.
If you see me having an attack, you get it. They are quick but fierce and I clutch her.. Some times she looks at me and jumps off my lap then stretches to be picked up again- "FOCUS on me" her eyes speak. She knows. It's not pleasant for others to see - trust me when I say it's much more unpleasant for me to experience so please.. get over it.
Poppy LOVED California! I loved California! Truly & the people in general MORE.. not just my friends. As Canadians I hope we send them our prayers/good vibes daily, too many are suffering right now and are living in fear and unstably.
All & all - California was friendly & very understanding of Poppy & I when we ventured out as a team & I am truly grateful for having had her with me for countless reasons.
Please Don't judge people with service animals- if the dog behaves badly - YES, address it. Please don't just assume we are all the "fakers". Do you really think I enjoy taking a dog with me everywhere? I don't. I LOVE her but it gets tiring... thankfully, when I am with someone I am comfortable with I can leave her - someone who understands and just rides it out with me for a few seconds. Next museum- in France (dream big baby!) no Poppy!
Well... she does like Vincent van Gogh!!
Poppy Loved California & my friend too - which was terrific - it made my visit more comfortable. I'm sure he is missing her. It inspired a funny card which gave me good giggle to paint! I'll share it another day. More On Poppys adventure with the customs officers soon but these are some of her favourite photos of California.
Georgia... On My Mind.
