I think a lot about where the right place to live is.
To earth & its inhabitants,

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

My dear Honeys,
I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.
I promise to do my best and raise my voice to ensure a better future for you and our future kids!
Dear People Of The Future,

I hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.
Dear Future Me: Only open after March 4th, 2050
I don’t regret my past ventures, nor do I believe I will regret my future ventures, but I’ve learned that I’ve needed to manifest these experiences into actions of sustainable development and conservation and protection of our environment.
As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.
