A loong cycling journey from Brooklyn to Jorusalom, where the O’s are bicycle wheels, continued into Egypt, 1st to the climate conference COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, on to the pyramids in Giza, Abusir and Saqqara and then up the Nile soourcewards.


Good morning

my friend Stuart Scott (who passed away this summer) promoted that Herman Daly should get the Nobel Prize for introducing Environmental Economics

How do we convince all the busy men and women to do something environmentally sound? Instead of being just busy?

And what is sound?

The Legacy of Stuart Scott

Outside de Beograd ‘White City’ Modern Art Museum:

the fear of dying by other lifeforms (animals, plants) seems to be behind the rejection of being part of life

That makes so much destruction seem ‘normal’

Not perceiving how also the support by life behind us, is eroding quicker and quicker, as only the manageable life remains.

everyday I read a bit further in Karen Armstrong’s History of Jerusalem

Today about Roman Emperor Hadrianus who in 131 CE wanted to replace the ruins of Jerusalem with a modern secular city.

The feeling that Karen Armstrong must have had a team of co-workers, so much does she know. Perhaps from the time she made a series for the BBC on faith and went to the ‘holy land’ for this.
