  1. L1 at least offers two different contextual framework on which Ls 2&3 work effectively:

    I Festive (World Theatre Day is celebrated every year on March 27)

    The ducks put on a good show for us to ponder human relationships

    2 Astrological:

    'As an Aries born on March 27th, your personality is defined by enthusiasm, energy and passion. You take to all matters of life with great energy and dedication.'

    The heartwarming image depicted in Ls 2&3 makes one to ponder his/her astrological pursuits.
