Darlings, now that we’re into Fall I need to check in. I truly hope this finds you well and happy and most of all, healthy. So many of us have been affected in one way or another by the Covid pandemic, and I’m hoping you and yours are in good shape. It’s been stunning to me how many people don’t understand the basic concept of disease, but then again there are always people who don’t understand or trust science. I even had a (christian conservative) friend tell me recently she was “sick of the word science”. So what do we do when a portion of the populace is determined to ignore facts and overwhelm the hospitals? Like many of us, I’ve learned the hard way that often belief can supersede facts; when someone has a strongly held emotional belief ain’t nothing you can do about it. So for me the best thing has been staying as happy as possible. And you know that means lots of walking, lots of salad (and chocolate!) and coming up with new cannabis recipes. I’m not saying just stay high until the pandemic’s over, but at the same time I’ve been able to stay sane and elevated with our friend cannabis. So darlings, whether you enjoy some relaxing CBD preparations before bed, if you use infused sugar in your coffee at work, or if you blaze the minute you get home – I say no worries. Mother Earth has given us cannabis for a reason, and I think surviving a worldwide pandemic with the gift of her medicine is the way to go. So -onward!
