Dear Future Self,

How are you holding up? Is the sky still blue? Is the ocean still blue? It better be blue because I don’t want my future actions, your past actions, to have been for nothing. But let’s be realistic, as a single person, the chances of me saving the planet from immeasurable doom are very low. There’s so much that needs to be done and the majority needs to be done through the changes of major corporations. I am not the CEO of a major corporation, but maybe you are. Okay, maybe ruling over a workplace just isn’t in the stars for us, but I digress. Me not having the influence as Jeff Bezos (Do you remember him? Bald owner of Amazon, the buy something online and have it arrive in a day guy? Yes?) doesn’t mean I can’t do anything. So we’ll see, in the future, your present, have I done anything to better your future? You can say no, but I hope it’ll be a yes.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Nova and Remi,

I wish for you both that another kind of life has been discovered, one of peace, moderation and concern for all life.

 

Son,

Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.

 

To my grandchildren,

Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.

 

Dearest Finlay,

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.

 

To my child,

For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.

 

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.

 

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

Dear Josh, LeeAnn, & Jessica,

I am very proud to know that You will treat Our Earth, Our Natural Gift, Our Playful Backyard with the same Awesome Respect that We give to each other, as a Family – Knowing that Our Earth, is Your Child Now.

 

Dear Kids,

My mistake was thinking I needed to give you more to be a good Mom. Recently your aunt asked me what my favorite toy was growing up. I gulped, I didn’t have one- it was the outdoors, sliding down a ravine of leaves with my Dad, skiing and camping. Today is October 12th, 2021 and I am still going to be giving you a lot, it’s going to look a little different – love, experiences, education and a healthy planet.

 

To our future generations,

I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise my next vehicle will be an EV.

 

Dear Tara,

Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.
