Dear Lucas,

Right now you are about my age, 45 years old. I hope the world you’re enjoying right now is still filled with the beautiful trees we used to walk under when you were a baby. Lit up by clear and beautiful blue prairie skies and sunsets so magnificent you still want to take pictures of them like you did at 16. Most of all, I hope you’re still able to meander with your loved ones in nature, like we always did. That is why I made the changes I did in my life. I hope they were enough. I love you and hope the world is kind, collaborative, and a lot less lonely that it was. I hope you not only enjoy nature for many years still, but the human experience found in it. Love always, Mom.
