Hello Future,

It’s hard to imagine what the world is gonna be like tomorrow, let alone a few decades in the future. I can only hope that in the future, the world gets it together. Right now there is so much uncertainty and violence in the world, I hope we can get to a point where things are more peaceful and predictable. As of today, the White House has finally somewhat acknowledged the fact that climate change is a real and human caused thing. I believe this is one small step in the right direction. I do hope that things keep moving in this positive direction. I do believe it will, simply because I don’t think we can possibly regress any further. Additionally, I hope that we start to make progress towards FIXING the problem that we have caused. Instead of the debate being whether or not climate change is a real thing, hopefully in the future there are conversations revolving around what more we can do to counteract the effects of climate change. Hopefully those conversation also include ways to assist those who are most effected by climate change.

I promise to plant more flowers.

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

 

Dear James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will only use renewable energy.

 

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.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

I pledge to take the bus.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.

 

Dear Future Afnan,

You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.

 

Annalu minha filha amada,

Espero de coração que, no futuro, você possa olhar para trás e se orgulhar muito dos pais que teve.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to use a refillable bottle, bring my own resusable spoon/form wherever I go, use clean personal care products (without chemicals).
