To my grandkids,

This is pop pop jack. Year is 2017 and things are getting wild. The ocean is rising, dunes are eroding and the place we call home on cape cod could be drastically different one day. One thing I did to step up was to stop using plastic water bottle and use reusable bottles and glasses. Also, I tried to unplug all unused stuff around the house. This def made some people angry.

Best of luck,

J

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.

 

Hello spawn,

I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to purchase carbon offsets when we fly.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to take my bike everywhere. Taking Golden Gate Transit to SF tonight.

 

Dear future me,

My hopes have always been to live in a brighter and better generation, where women are respected around the world, human rights are respected and last but not least where animals and mother nature is cared for by us individuals.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

 

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

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.

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.
