Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.

Dear Tara,

I want you to know that while much of the world twiddled its thumbs and scratched its pointy head about whether humans could really have an impact on the climate, I was working every day to make your future life a little bit easier. Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day. I say this not to blow my own little horn but to convince you of how deep my love is for you and those who will share your world when I am but a memory.

I love you, Uncle Tim

More Messages to the Future

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.

 

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.

 

Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…

If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.

 

Chers Enfants,

Chers Enfants,

 

Dear Lalo,

I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.

 

Dear Future

My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

 

Dear grandkids,

I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.

 

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.

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.
