February is the month of love, of Valentine’s Day. The day before Valentine’s Day is World Radio Day and a week after Valentine’s Day is International Mother Language Day. Thanks, moms! February commemorates the Waitangi Treaty, first Sámi congress, the RAMSAR convention, and the Mexican constitution. In the USA: Superbowl, and a month-long reflection on Black history.

Birthdays include Charles Darwin, George Washington, and Bob Marley, whose circles around the sun were musical earthstrongs. We join the Marley Party on February 6.
