Mark Blackburn's Letter

To My Future Self,

So, your father was a car dealer. Does that mean YOU have to be a petrol head?

So, your work meant you had to fly all over the place. Does that mean YOU have to go on planes now?

So, your house came with an oil burner. Does that mean YOU have to burn fossil fuels now?

So, you rated yourself, were used to wearing designer labels. Does that mean YOU have to buy brand new clothes now?

So, you love your steaks and your burgers. Does that mean YOU always have to eat meat now?

Think long and hard. There may be a YOU now, but will there be a future YOU? Will there be the food, the climate, the stability? The future YOU depends on the now YOU…

With love and hope,
