Memories- Capture Now with a Bottle of Wine

I had a great idea when I was at the liquor store a couple of weeks ago buying a bottle of red for my brothers birthday dinner. I decided to buy an extra bottle (when is that ever a bad idea right?). Okay but this extra bottle isn’t for drinking.. yet.

I ripped off a page from my notebook and wrote point form notes on what was going on with the crew. For example:

  • Brother’s 21st birthday
  • Dip’s trip
  • etc.

I then taped said paper onto the bottle. I will now keep this bottle for a very, very long time. I look forward to sharing this fine bottle of red with my friends and family when we’re older. When things have changed. It’ll be great to enjoy a bottle that I know I purchased when I was 23 years old. Imagine.. being 50 and drinking a glass of red from a bottle you bought when you were that young. Amazing.

I’m definitely not saying I’m in a rush to grow up. If I could I would freeze time right now. But time doesn’t freeze, life keeps moving. So I keep moving, trying to make the best of every situation, every moment. There’s a quote from a movie I used to love watching with my Dad as a kid,

“Life goes by pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you might miss it.” – Ferris Bueller from Ferris Beuller’s Day Off.

Great movie, if you haven’t seen it and you’re looking for a fun movie to watch one day, this is it.

That’s all for now. It’s Sunday afternoon and Toronto’s going through a snowstorm (when is it not). I think I’m going to watch a movie called, “La La Land” today- starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. After that I’ll shovel, and then hopefully head to the gym if the roads are plowed!

Till next time.. live, laugh, love

My Experience with Yoga & Cannabis

Alright don’t judge me. I’ve been enjoying Yoga and I finally understand my body and mind in a way I just can’t put into words. It’s more of an awareness and feeling. With this new found comfort I’ve found in Yoga, I felt like experimenting a little bit..

So I ate a piece of chocolate an hour before Yoga class.

It was so sweet and creamy, I loved it!

Might I add that there was a hint of THC inside of the piece of chocolate that I consumed.

Yes, I had an edible before Yoga and right around the time I sat cross legged on my mat for the evening, I was “uplifted.” Yoga was great that night (it always is), I felt as if I was in a deep deep state of being and I could hear the blood flowing through the veins of my body. I would definitely recommend any Yogis to try a Yoga class with a subtle amount of THC in the system. If however, you have little to no experience with cannabis, don’t bother.
