Dear Mark,

Many, many years ago I was an avid smoker; at least 2 packs a day. I was always diligent in NOT throwing the butts on the ground. Walking around my neighborhood I see the ground littered with cigarette butts. Where do they go? Washed down the street drains, eventually ending in the waterways/ocean. They are not biodegradable but are harmful to the Ecosystem. Please, please dispose of the butts or carry a personal ashtray; a zippered pouch that can eventually be emptied into an appropriate receptical.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.

 

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.

 

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.

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

Dear Sinchi,

The world is changing and it is happening fast.

 

Dear Gabriel,

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – The Lorax

 

Dear Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

To anyone who has heard my music,

I promise to care about the planet.

 

Future Message to Earth,

Hope there will be no more droughts,
And no more pollution with which we fought,
Regarding every human should be taught,
Ensuring that we uniformly follow these thoughts.
