aprile 2020, 50° giornata internazionale della terra

scroll down for english text, please.

Oggi è una giornata particolare, dovremmo preoccuparci della nostra Madre Terra. Ma l’emergenza Covid 19 ci ha distratto e molti di noi sono preoccupoati più per la propria esistenza che per il nostro pianeta. E’ comprensibile, salute lavoro ed economia sono fortemente minacciati.

Today is a special day, we should worry about our Mother Earth. But many of us have been distracted by the Covid19 emergency and are more worried about their own existence than about our planet. It is understandable becasue health, work and economy are really threatened.

Ma  sarebbe utile pensare che le due cose potrebbero essere fortemnente legate e questa pandemia e le sue conseguenze  sono anche il risultato di un certo modo di vivere e di sfruttare il pianeta. E forse avere come priorità solo gli interessi economici non è stata, e non sarà la scelta migliore.

But it would be useful to think that the two things could be connected and this pandemic with its consequences is  the result of a certain way of living  exploiting the planet. And perhaps having economic interests as a priority has not been, and will not be the best option.

Mi auguro che convivendo con questa pandemia ci domanderemo dove vogliamo andare, verso quale società, verso quale mondo…pensiamoci per favore e poi proviamo a darci da fare.

I do hope  that living  with this pandemic we’ll ask ourselves where do we want to go, towards which society, towards which world…let’s think about please and than let’s try to get busy.

Sarebbe stato bello trascorrere questa giornata nella natura a non è stato possibile. Mi sono accontentato di camminare su e giù per il mio terrazzo…e sentire il profumo delle mie piante di rosmarino!

It would have been nice to spend this day walking in a forest\ and it was not possible. I could only walk up and down my terrace …  smelling the scent of my rosemary plants!

E voi come avreste voluto trascorrere la cinquantesima Giornata della Terra?

How about yourselves? How would you have liked to spend the fiftieth Earth Day?

Mi piacerebbe saperlo, pertanto lasciate pure un vostro commento, grazie.

I would be happy to know it, therefore you can leave a comment, thank you.

Per chi fosse curioso la foto di apertura è stata scattata durante la Biennale d’Arte Internazionale di Venezia del 2015.

If you are curious the opening photo has been taken during the International Biennal of Art of 2015 in Venice.

  1. Yes, the corona spread is a symptom of a way of living that is not sustainable. I hope we will be rethinking everything and set a new course in the wake of the pandemic. At least mother nature is breathing a little easier these days.

  2. more BLUR, yay!!!! love it, kind of creepy looking hehe… happy earth day, i did go outside, in front of the house… breathing fresh air… it’s usually not fresh, coz we live by a road that is normally very busy, but with the PLAGUE it’s not busy anymore… mother earth is getting a breather.

    • Nice you enjoyed the fresh air! Now is time to think how to have fresh clean air without the covid 19 virus emergency. More environmental friendly industries and more careful human behaviour, not easy to find the right way.

  3. i would like to walk in a forest with friends and have a picnic there. i’m not very optimistic for the future cause most people are not interested in making the Earth better.

  4. I have watched the most incredible bird in front of my door, sipping some fluid from a banana plant, it’s colors were bright yellow and black. I wished he/she would have stayed longer to photography it, but it had other business to follow up and flew away, yet it brought me much happiness to my day.
