etymology of the word marijuana (iyl ver.1)

ok so you guys know about my calendar idea right. i know it ridiculous but i really want to work on my art production. and even if its a scene im completely not involved with i really like what they are about.
so the ideas changed like a gazillion times. im not involved enough to get any view, a clearer grasp, my own stance. so i was thinking..since i know all these artists more than i know these women activists, i was thinking of changing the main image of the calendar to be an illustration depicting their vision of a marijuana goddess. I was thinking of the word marijuana and its from mexico. now mexico was colonized by spain. so christian motifs in their lore and language has seeped in. "Mary Jane" sounds like a bad american translation of mary joana. now mary traditionally mary is the mother of christ. and john baptised christ, but also its from latin meaning graced by yaweh. or graced by god. with this logic anything given this name is a conduit of the grace of god. wouldnt you say? now i think yaweh is ja and ja comes from el ? so my train of thought is lost but it included some political stuff on israel and how they are supposed to fight their enemies but actually they are fighting themselves because their enemy should be america not palestine because they live in palestine lol shit where you eat ey? i love eating on the toilet. sorry ive been reading all the wrong things. meanwhile i have to get crackin on my day and im going gto figure out how to properly upload items onto my shopcastr shop cos they are giving away an ipad and i really want one even though i just got a new old pc laptop. why not.
here are a couple pieces i had lyndl do, and she also practiced her photography and color correction and resizing :)

this piece i had her re assemble or something. i wasnt sure about it before but looking at it on someone made me like all the more
 this is the piece lyndl made, i had her copy the old seahorse pieces with whatever we had lying around and she came up with this piece. she made two and they are on the website.

in my stuff, theres loads of necklaces that didnt sell or even get shown. like this one was in a box of supplies :p

 this one is my current fave called the dream weaver necklace and was thinking of dream catchers cos i made a couple last year and thought of making it into a necklace somehow.
there are a few more pieces i need to put up and a bunch listing errors i need to fix which i dont really want to tackle right now lol so meanwhile its saturday spring cleanish...
so theres a new its your life member, lyndl. well, shes the only other member aside from myself lol. shes been learning how everything goes down and has made a few pieces and learned how to put stuff up on the website. she interested in relaunching its your life and its sparked my re-interest as well. so as she is learning, we are applying to fairs and adding new pieces to the website. were splitting the funds so support us cos were cool chicks.

my summer plans are kind of strange. and everything is so nebulous but i think the main point is i dont have any identity. its expired. why is travelling so difficult. if i was the pope i could go anywhere without a passport. but i think he might have his own plane or something like that. im not sure. oh yeah. so i have the place to myself again (that was majorly crazy) and ive been trying to fix it again. its better and ive done a new arrangement with the sewing desk. im so whirl winded with all these funny and difficult plans to get back home. i need to make way more money before i think of going and it matches up with my identity in the mail, and current lack of applied business acumen. so with lyndl, and the timing of this paperwork and the summer coming up, i hope i can make a business again out of my business and now have lyndl too, to inspire and be inspired by.
i got a new pc laptop computer and was thinking of loading it up with programs and then possibly bringing it to the philippines for cherry and josh. if i got a webcam and paid their internet connection they could communicate with me on their progress etc. also i have a registered business down there and was thinking of getting a business bank account and they could handle that, paypal funds could go to it and it could be good. so thats one of the funny plans. guess none of them are really difficult. i just get stressed. anyway so today i dont really have any plans but fixing up my place so i feel comfortable again in it. how did i come up with so much stuff anyway? :D

meanwhile, i went to montreal and niagara falls and here are a few pictures.
montreal was great, saw tina and we got to talk and reconnect. i miss everyone, as usual.
the arts in old montreal and the door, thats the ND door.

so this paste up says "what if love ruled the world?"

gossip girls.. thats me and tina but rina was missing...
notre damn... the ND door. impressive, heavy looking and formidable. it was 5 bucks to go into the church so we didnt go.

                                         the falls, and the rainbow bridge to the u.s.

theres a place called goat island over in the states where you look at the falls from there but canada got the best view. so i was thinking of drawing this...

so i was reading in the paper about all those untested metal replacement hips that they installed into people needing them..only to all be recalled. what jerks...
so the danzig shakira mash up does it again. i watched it twice and it still cracks me up, like hysterically.
this is for all the canadians who need a replacement hip for their replacement hip.
