Shit Happens

Stepping out of the wrong side of the bed, bumping your little toe to the bedside, stumbling over the cat who’s constant at your feet to show you her affection, spilling milk over your fresh outfit, forgot your keys while you just slammed the door, missed the bus, forgot your lunchbox or to comb your hair, spinach between your teeth’s, two different socks, traffic jam, data loss, got fired, bad hair day, quiet desperation shit happens (and then you die)

Personal affairs can be shitty by them selves, you really don’t need the shit of the entire world. Still…you cannot close your eyes to it. Currently a large piece of coral is damaged by BAM at Curacao harbour. It happened by accident, they said. And they (BAM) will look in to it. If they appear to be guilty of the matter they will compensate. But who or what are they going to compensate? It took ages to grow; it took a minute to annihilate. It cannot be compensated by money and they cannot make new coral, that’s for sure. To get back on the shitty subject, there’s nothing you can do really, but saying he!, shit happens and proceed with whatever you were doing. And life’s goes on until it stops.

Who ever dived or snorkeld at Curacao or Bonaire knows how exeptional overwhelming, delicate and beautifull it is.

‘Not Easy Being Green’

It is not easy being green” is a famous quote from a green Muppet frog called Kermit. Kermit was referring to him self, his destiny wearing his green skin, and during romantic endeavours with miss Piggy. He suffered from self-pity in a very charming way. But his words covered a lot more, maybe more than he realized back in the happy Jim Hanson years.

It is ‘not easy being green’ > if you live in Russia and being critical to the corruption of Medvedev or the Poetin administration. Or being critical to the regime what’s so ever.

It is not easy being green if you are Turkish and not in favour of the rising new dictator called Erdogan.

It is not easy being green if you are a Muslim in a polarized world. Caught in between two extremes. Not Muslim enough for the Muslim fundamentalist, not western enough for the populist.

It is not easy being green if your name is Jesse Klaver, in for the race to the new ‘right’- ‘middle’ oriented Dutch cabinet. What’s there to win; a lot! What’s there to lose? His electorate> see what happened earlier.

It is not easy being green in a globalized world, with rapidly increasing populations and many mouths to feed.

But it might be the only reasonable thing to do.
