Dear unknown future person reading this a minute after I press send or a hundred years from now…

I will try to come out of this crisis making more of an effort to imagine, create and live in a world that treats other people, animals and the matter of the world itself so much better.

Every single day I will strive for these changes wherever and whenever I can. Sometimes in my kitchen; sometimes in my street and other days with action and ideas for the sea and skies beyond.

I will try to change and hope it makes a difference to you.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to eat less meat.

 

Dear Emilia and Tommy,

We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.

 

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.

 

To my child,

For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.

 

Dear grand nieces and nephews,

I wish you this security knowing we changed because we love you.

 

Dear Jeremy,

We had a lot in common obviously, and our concern for the planet we live on was one of the many things we bonded over.

 

Dear Maret,

Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.

 

dear future children,

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.

 

Dear friends,

Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?

 

Dear Erica and Matthew,

I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.

 

Dear Future Sami Lee,

Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.
