Dory, my love

It’s 2017 now and you will be almost my age now when you read this. You know my fears for the future. I hope we have managed to avert David King’s ‘catastrophic’ climate change – and all the other pitfalls we have set ourselves up for – nuclear leaks, biodiversity loss, resource depletion etc. All I can say is that I tried – I have been giving the talks for a year now. My generation can only offer its apologies – how have we stayed so ignorant for so long? Too many answers to that. I hope you too can say that you have done your best to leave this planet in a better state than you found it – I’m sure you will. I hope I am there in 2050 to read this with you but if not, always know how much you were loved.

Your mum – Nikki XXX

Dear Me of Tomorrow,

I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.

 

Fe,

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.

 

Dear next generation,

I hope that by the time you’re reading this, things have changed and people have started to protect the earth

 

Dear Alanna and Valeria,

I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to become more educated on the global issues that face populations I can’t see

 

To future Geof,

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

 

Dear tomorrow,

The blue sky will no longer be grey, and the bleak clouds will be vibrant.

 

Dear Ellis,

So, dear heart, I am doing everything I can as the situation worsens.

 

To my Kids,

I wish you all the best and always make sure that you can be proud of yourself and don’t need status-symbols for feeling nice.

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

 

Dear Great Grandchildren,

If you are reading this, you probably inherited my fascination with ancestry, and the way it uncovers incredible stories of unlikely survival.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.
