“I am suggesting that as we go through life, we ‘accentuate the positive.’ I am asking that we look a little deeper for the good, that we still our voices of insult and sarcasm, that we more generously compliment and endorse virtue and effort.”

― Gordon B. Hinckley

Today we celebrate our planet. A small speck of rock with just enough moisture clinging to it to keep it from rolling through the universe eternally dry and barren, like so many of our cosmic neighbors. Our home was lucky enough to land in the solar “sweet spot”, that area of space close enough to our star to sustain life, and far enough away to make sure of our continued success as a specie. I love this small piece of rock that supports billions of lifeforms of all shape, colors, and textures, and I am grateful to whatever force saw to it that I would get a chance to witness the beauty and grandeur of this very special place. I see a future where every one of us is grateful for the chance we are given here, now, and that we work together to heal the wounds that have been inflicted on this fragile pebble in space. It is the only home we have and to damage our own home is a crime, that needs to stop today. I saw a film ( Size Comparison of the Universe 2015) that brought tears to my eyes when my mind grasped fully how small we actually are, I’ve added it to this post so that you can enjoy it too. I don’t necessarily mean small in the literal sense. We think small so it’s easy to neglect what appears to be an inexhaustible resource. We need desperately to get a grip on reality and start to turn away from wanton destruction of the only place we will ever truly call home. Each one of us can do something each day to help restore our planet. See some trash? Pick it up and put it in a trash bin. Don’t just assume someone else is going to do it, the healing starts with each one of us. Be an active participant on some level so that the unborn generations can enjoy the beauty and grandeur that we did. Happy Earth Day!!

Now that this year is well underway and off to an exhilarating start I’m happy to report the non-profit founded in 2010 as the  Fruit of the Spirit Corporation is growing at an accelerated rate due in great part to the Weedmaps ad campaign. Stay tuned for updates on the company and on how my life has changed because of it.

In Theaters Friday June 10, 2011

Opening In Theaters Friday June 10, 2011

It’s amazing that I’ve let this much time go by without so much as a peep since last year. I’m going to try to do better. I’ve been very, very busy with the non-profit project and have had to spread myself extremely thin. I figured it was time to start posting again because the temperatures are rising. Summer should actually start this week according the weather people so we should be able to get out more and chronicle some new adventures. We’ve had a long wet Winter that refuses to let Spring get sprung.

 These films are mostly foreign/limited releases, but a couple of them look intriguing. I’ve added the links to the trailers so you can check them out. I hope everyone has done well since my last post, and that you have some fun this weekend.

 Love and Peace
