Quo Vadis Humanity?
Are you aware that you live in a historical time that has never existed before? Yes pandemics happened before but we didn't have means to communicate like now. Twitter and Fake News go around the world in 1 second. New York City, my town that Never Sleeps, is sleeping now and at the same time Humanity is talking in real time, communicating, sharing info, medical equipment, pleasantries..etc.! What is going on? My prediction of World Peace in One Hour of June 21, 2020 doesn't seems like a pipe dream anymore. Antonio Guterres, Secretary General of the UN asked for a worldwide ceasefire. Fake Media didn’t give him much space and the fact is that World Peace is around the corner. A few fights in Libya and Syria are exactly the places were COVID-19 didn’t take any serious toll yet. As of yesterday April 22, by the way was Earth Day,
Out of 2.5 million confirmed cases in the world Syria has only 42 and 3 dead. Libya 59 confirmed and 1 dead. As soon as the COVID-19 progress the fights will cease to exist like in Yemen two weeks ago.
Humans are fighting a common enemy and not among themselves. The last big pandemic and a really deadly one was the Spanish flu in 1917, actually ended First World War. Will Coronavirus bring a permanent peace to the civilization? It is up to us. If you didn’t know yet, yes it sounds crazy, but I have a plan and it was published in the Journal of Global Health, believe it or not. Here is the link so read it, ask your president or prime minister to act upon it. If you have a direct contact with Antonio Guterres, a Portuguese Secretary General of the UN, connect me, we don’t want to miss this once in history time to punch that reset button with joy and full force. Furthermore, we have now perspective when we took a wrong turn thousand years ago, seven hundred years ago, one hundred years ago (the first car was electric, what happened?) etc. we care for each other, more than we ever knew. Let's just do it.
Having said all of this, I will perform a few songs starting with a ping pong game that will go to 11 points, just one game then a song on a guitar, move to piano and at the same time you can send your questions opinions, desires, concepts, recommendations, connections etc. all live. Nothing prerecorded to sound perfect and also, although I am in the recording studio, we'll not use much of technology, just an iPhone, no professional microphone or reverb, all acoustic and live. Simple and from the heart, See you and talk to you on Saturday April 25th, 2020.

Novi List, April 12, 2020. If there is Heaven on Earth, it would be the Croatia that I'm thinking about.
Thought of the day. Where the Coronavirus is present, there is no war.
