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

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

Dear friend,

I will fight for this cause and I will never ever give up because we, the youngsters, are the hope.
