May my tomorrow include more attention to these details so that you know that I do care.

Dear fellow human,

I have gone through this day with too little attention to the cost I effected on this earth so that I could work for a living, eat meals, have a warm home, wear fashionable clothing, experience comfort. That lack of attention has affected you. May my tomorrow include more attention to these details so that you know that I do care. The worries I have today are so minor compared to what they will be for you if I do not attend to the costs my actions have.

With deep respect.
Diana

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.
