More Messages to the Future
The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.
Dear Me of Tomorrow,
I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.
Dear Annie and Eric,
I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.
I will recycle stuff I found.

I promise to stop eating junk food.
I promise to go to the farmer’s market more

Dear X—, Dear A—,
As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.
I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?
I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.
