March 25th was The World Day for the End of Fishing (WoDEF)
WoDEF asks for the abolition of fishing and fish farming for fishes, crustaceans and cephalopods.
This webinar by myth-busting ethologist Jonathan Balcombe is a worth a watch.
Wishing you all a happy, sunny day!

What is the reason we’re here?
I hope the hell it’s not to be the same, not just to be the same (…)
My worst dilemma in life is: Why after all this time, can’t human beings stop killing each other?
I mean, you and me, we would sit down and we would agree.
We could even take a vow not kill each other, between us, since we know each other and yet…
It seems so simple but it’s just not a simple thing (…)
Human beings identify so much with their bodies, and their chachkas and their property; and they would defend them to the death.
And therein lies the problem.

Happy Continuation Day beloved Davidji
You make this world a better place to live in.
With love and gratitude beyond words,
“Life is but a dream we renew each day. It is up to us to infuse this dream with light, and to cultivate, as best as we are able, the ways and habits of love.
Those of great heart have always known this.
They have understood that, as honorable as it is to see wrong and to try to correct it, a life well lived must somehow celebrate the promise that life provides. The darkness at the limits of our knowledge — the darkness that sometimes seems to surround us — is merely a way to make us reach beyond certainty, to make our lives a witness to hope, a testimony to possibility, an urge toward the best and the most honorable impulses that our hearts can conceive.
It is not hard. There is in each of us, no matter how humble, a capacity for love. Even if our lives have not taken the course we had envisioned, even if we are less than the shape of our dreams, we are part of the human family. Somewhere, in the most inconsequential corners of our lives, is the opportunity for love.”
