Dear Grown up Alton and Dot,
The most important thing in my life is you, which means that as your mom – I am doing my very best to make sure that when you read this letter, Earth is a cleaner and safer place for you and your children.
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.
To my darling ones,
And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age
For my most dear and only daughter,
And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through.
Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.
