todays trilogy of important days for me needs attention, even when "not in town" and busy with all these interconencted issues, needing contexts adn "elevators" between the scales.
I will not focus on Good Friday, but the idea to sacrifice for a global common makes sense and can reduce the the inflcition of suffering. See PANETICS and Eulogy for Ralp G. H. Siu and his International Society
TODAY IS WATER DAY UN [link] and IIED [link]
I have written extensively about Water as a common and link for survival, see all the events in Geneva and Berlin the last weeks.

Let us sum-up: Two Earth Days - One Earth. I have many friends on both ends, so why not have to parties? One the other hand we are flooded with International and UN Days for various reasons. Maybe we should connect and bundle ? in order to get lost and dumbed-down by another after another meaningless day. Specially in times when we should care better about Water & Earth - all living or even compassionate and sentinent beings and other life-forms - the endangered ones.....
