I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses. I hope the air of Australia is still known to be the freshest. Animals and plants still flourish in all parts of the land. Exploring and savoring these moments I know you have with your determination to travel. I hope you have a family and go on road trips with them. I am sorry we never could as a family because I know you would’ve loved to.
I hope you have some amazing job that is not just sitting in a chair and typing all day and I do hope the same for me cause we both know that I would be playing some sort of game and I would be 100% addicted. I hope you live in an environmentally friendly house to some extent. I know you have taken on mum’s weird recycling habitats that drive everyone nuts. I hope you don’t have an extra-large red bin and waste food all the time. I hope you cook your own meals every night or someone does.
I promise to make a bigger effort to be sustainable by using less plastic and recycling more. I promise to keep showing up to the Rocklea markets and buy fresh produce instead of buying the soggy frozen stuff. As much as I love my sweet foods that use way too much plastic, I know I need to reduce how much I buy.
I hope our bond is stronger than it is today as I sit in this classroom wondering if you will in fact read this. I hope you are no longer in a pandemic and there is a vaccination for covid-19.
I love you so much even when I don’t show it.
Much love your big sister,
