Find something you love and let it kill you.
– Kinky Friedman
Publish a fine natural magazine and have to come up with a hundred-eighty some odd (some very odd) words to kick it off, every month, and you rely a lot on holidays.
April is a gold mine this year.
You got your 4/20, a horse with no other name, to celebrate all things cannabis.
Easter Sunday is April 21, time to make your annual church visit, tell kids rabbits hide eggs and watch them eat sugar until they pass out, and contemplate the nature of resurrections.
On Earth Day, April 22, instead of feeling good about yourself by asking for no plastic straw in the restaurant water you’ll probably waste, contemplate environmental resurrections that could change a lot of things – which brings you right back to 4/20 and the resurrection of hemp and cannabis as money-makers.
If you’re still in the holiday spirit come April 26, raise something you love in a toast to the eighty-sixth birthday of Willie Hugh Nelson, who celebrates 4/20 most every day.
