Welcome to 2020: the year of clear vision

1 01 2020


Welcome to the year 2020. Let it be a year of clear vision, not of hindsight nor of foresight, but in the present.

Let us remember as we stand at the ocean that it’s not the Atlantic or the Pacific or whatever other names we as humans have given them. The ocean is endless and it connects us all.

Let us remember that the air that we breathe circulates around the globe. The molecules we inhale may have come from Africa, or Antarctica, or Alaska, or Aruba.

Let us remember that the oxygen we breathe is here because plants convert the carbon dioxide we exhale into animal life-giving oxygen we inhale. It is a global cycle that allows life to continue on earth.

Let us remember to see the interconnections between us and everything else.

Let the year 2020 be a year of clear vision.
