I cannot reconcile my vision of an inevitable climate-collapse apocalypse with the fact that I have a child. It hurts so much to think of.

So good, thank you for sharing this Emily! (I could write that under every one of your posts but I am trying to show some restraint / cultivate a cool aloofness)

This is so good though!!! 🤌🔥🕺✨🙌

Your letter is such a sweet balance between hope and despair! Which is where we live now I guess. Thank you for capturing it perfectly.
