Dear Maddy,

I cursed the earth and I cursed the ocean for a long time. I cursed it for its power and dark twisted secrets. I cursed the wind on that day, I cursed the strange dip in temperature. I cursed for how it shattered our family’s life, the unmendable holes it bore in everyone I loved. I cursed it for the birthday invitations your friends already received and the new one on its way. I cursed it the most for how it swallowed your only protector that day, leaving just your body to float while the earth completed its usual rotation. I cursed that I was not with you on the boat and I curse time for not working how people say.

We built you a butterfly garden at your school. I no longer curse the earth and even though you no longer need protection, I promise to protect your butterfly garden because this time I am in earshot of someone in need, our home, our earth and I will not let another beautiful, funny, brilliant and innocent sister slip away.

In addition to protecting your butterfly garden to help promote pollination and healthy ecosystems, I will continue to vote Green and advocate for voting in every Provincial and Federal election so that we can set the pace for the transition away from carbon-polluting fuels to brighter and more sustainable energy and so that we don’t give the government a pass on things like logging of old growth forests.

I will fight for the things that will help protect your butterfly garden so you will forever be bright.

Love,

your sister

Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.
