“Those of us who are 
brave enough to venture out, 
find so many things that 
we never knew within.” 
                 Linda Poindexter










"Two lost things that had survived 
the seas and arrived on a coastline. 
What did they do? 
They implanted themselves 
in the sand and grew into trees and 
lined the beaches. Sometimes a lot 
can come of being all washed up. 
You can really grow."
                 Cecelia Ahern

Celebrate Green

A  L  O  H  A !
Today, we celebrate 
GREEN!
As this Kolea does






Though not the tropical greens
and broad lawns of Waikiki.





 Today, 420 Day, we celebrate Cannabis 
in all it's wonder: Medicinal, creative, 
nourishing, religious. 







In several US States, it is legal
under State law for medicine,
or altogether legal for adults.
The US Justice Dept. has pulled
back on plans to interfere
with those states.

Some who persecuted
cannabis users for decades,
with passion, ruining many lives,
are now positioned to make 
huge fortunes for themselves.

California to her credit,
has begun expunging
the arrest records of those
convicted of what is now
legal (and profitable for
entrepreneur and tax man.)

So Keep Your Head
To The Skies, link
Wear your love
like Heaven, link
and Let your 
Freak Flag Fly.

Smoke / Vape / Eat
Them if you got them!

Thank YOU
Friend!
Fondest-ly,
