I felt it was important to share this picture on this community because I represents the brotherhood
many of us share in this game. We all have those select few friends who left their mark on our lives. And some of us wonder... "will I ever truly be missed when I'm gone?". Today I want to share with you a simple picture.
A picture is worth a thousand words right?
This picture represents the brotherhood that happens when we lose friends who used to share the same passion for growing. Friends who never got to see the big grow days but who we spent countless nights looking at the stars and dreaming of the big crop while sharing a joint. As a good friend once told me "pot is for friends".
In 2009, on the night of my birthday, I lost my best friend. The man I had spent raising hell with since BEFORE PRESCHOOL. The man I had smoked countless bowls with and MacGyvered how many gorilla grow contraptions with was lost. But his spirit was not. Today I carry the same picture in my wallet I have had in there since the day I lost him. The picture I am holding up in this photograph. Unbeknownst to all of you he blazed through OG back in the day too! He would be excited to tell me of some new crazy method he was reading about! We would share and dream of the big crop. Not the money, the garden. The best smoke in the world by the few who had the key to the forbidden fruit. Those who dared open pandora's box.
My friend never got to walk these rooms with me. Not in the flesh.
But believe me when I tell you he is by my side in spirit every day in those rooms.
So to all my friends I want to give one piece of growing advice I am yet to see on this forum, I am sure it is hidden in many articles disguised cleverly as "advice", and that is GRATITUDE! We share here and come here to learn from each other and help each other. Many of us never asking anything in return for the tidbits of whatever we happen to share. But in a moment life is taken from us, the friends we grew with and shared our most dangerous ventures with can be gone in the blink of an eye. So please, if you read this all the way through, thank one person who helped you on your path. Allow one person to see that they matter and are valued. Almost a decade later I still wish to God I had the chance.
And in turn I would like start that off by thanking anyone on OG who was part of the original crew. The ladies and gentleman who were giving the top shelf advice back before the crash. THANK YOU
Some of you on here unknowingly shaped my life.
So THANK YOU
to the OG 1.0 crew!
AND THANK YOU
the OG 2.0 crew for bringin it back!
Keep sharing the love and wisdom my garden family!
