To my niece Ashleigh, nephews Ollie and Scott, and their children; the wider whanau

Dear Tomorrow, I often wish I could have done more. As a youngster I hoped fervently that our country would not go down the track of gross urbanisation with high rises & acres of motorways eating up our green land. One conscious positive action that I have consistantly practiced is my decision to remain carless. I see individual car ownership as part of the selfish, self centred  soci0-economic climate culture which has dominated our world thus far & the awful impact that domination has caused. Walking or catching the bus or train & cycling have been my conscious modes of transport. I have been very priviliged to see a national cycleway incentive initiated in Aotearoa (NZ). The “conscious eating & exercise & sobriety & let it begin with me” credo has helped me take responsibility for my own actions & also to begin to recognise how my individual actions impact our community as a whole. People matter most.

Dear Future,

I asked you, the future , to help us as well, to preserve our only planet that can give us life, that can let us watch anime, go to the beach, smell flowers, run through the meadow, listen to our songs, be in a concert, and let us live.

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

I will do my part to help ensure that there is an Earth left when we are done borrowing it.
