Dear me,

I’m just eighteen now and I feel insecure about many things in my life: my body, my character, my choices and especially my future. I’m not sure who I’m going to be in ten, twenty or even thirty years from now. Which path is the right one? No idea. I’m certain, however, that I’d like to find love one day and make it last. As you probably remember, I’ve never found love before and I’m looking forward to discovering the beauty and the joy of it. I’d love to have children and a fullfilling job that makes me happy.I hope you will have travelled a bit around the globe by then, as you’ve always dreamt. I hope that the Coronavirus pandemic will end soon, in order to go back to our ordinary life. We already know that climate change is an urgent issue and I hope that by 2050 we will have fulfilled our duties, in order to make the Earth a better place. I believe in humankind and in its conscience. We may have just enough time to prevent certain catastrophes, I hope we’ll do a good job.
I hope that throughout your life you’ve always been yourself, the genuine, funny and messy Anita. I’d love to know that by then you will have joined an amazing gospel choir and took theatre lessons. I hope you’ve improved your cooking skills and become a skilled pastry chef.
Best wishes for the future,
always me

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.
