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.

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.

 

Hey kiddo,

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.

 

My Dear Grandchildren,

In writing this letter to you, I am searching for ways to make my connection and commitment to you more present in my current experience

Aos meus sobrinhos queridos, Ana Laura, Luis Carlos e Helloísa,

Talvez eu não esteja viva para ver alguma mudança, mas espero que vocês vejam e tenham um mundo melhor em 2050. Plantei um ipê rosa e outro amarelo, que eles estejam florindo até 2050.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will encourage composting at work.
