Dear old dude Mårten,

I hope that you are well and feel loved by and hope towards the future of those nearest to your heart and mind. I know that the 2019 version of me (today that is) wished and hoped for that I did all within my power to turn the world around without loosing sight on the beauty of being alive. I hope you still have the courage to do so and feel empowered by others coming together to solve the climate crisis and that it hasn’t developed into a climate emergency but instead that the world, for most parts, has been steered into calmer waters.

I wish that I, by then will feel at ease, fulfilled and content and that I still feel empowered and powerful to continue that journey in the second half of the 21st century.

Salve! /Mårten

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.
