More Messages to the Future
I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.
Sempre é bom ajudar a natureza.
I am doing this to protect you, the food, water, air and biodiversity of a country that I love.
Dear Abigail and Olivia,
What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?
As causas das mudanças no clima são tão profundas e envolvem tanta gente e tantos lugares.
I promise I’ll replace our lights with LED lights.
To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,
With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.
My Mini & Lou,
Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.
I pledge to use less plastic!
Dear Amara and Uma,
Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.
I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.
My Dear Grandchildren,
In writing this letter to you, I am searching for ways to make my connection and commitment to you more present in my current experience
