I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.

Dear Erica and Matthew,

Tahoe has always been our favorite place, and I so love spending our summers up there. I love that we walk and bike everywhere, I love the trailheads all around our neighborhood, and I love spending the day paddle boarding into town.  To keep Tahoe the place we love we must continue to support organizations like Sierra Watch that are fighting the Squaw and Martis Valley developments. As a family, we must continue to Keep Squaw True!!! The Tahoe Basin and the clarity of our beloved lake are at stake if we continue to allow huge developments into the basin. I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age
