Dear Rowan and Sam,

I hope when you read this that you have not only witnessed but also participated in the work that it has taken to divert our planet from catastrophe.

Through my work, and my personal example I hope that i made a difference in some way. I have seen the change with my own eyes over the decades and feared what your future would look like. Despite being fearful, I was excited. You know me and my curiosity; my love for change and doing new things. I was optimistic. I knew from my work in energy that renewables would eventually become our primary energy source. I’ve seen innovation at Green Conferences that were just ideas and I knew that one day they would go mainstream. I had even eaten mealworm bolognese. I knew that big changes were going to come and I was excited that you would be involved in the incredible transformation.

The world we have transitioned to is the world I wish I grew up in.

Enjoy thriving in your harmonious communities, dancing with the wild in the abundance of nature, and eating food that is good for you and the planet.

Love,
Mom
