If nature could speak, what would she say? It’s a question
we may not often (or ever) have thought about, but one
that we should seriously ponder. Here’s a quick memo
that could have been penned by Mother Nature herself.

I understand that you are all too busy to call your mother, but I’m busy,
too. I’m your Mother, I know everything that you’re up to, even when
you don’t think I do. Sometimes I sit back and I’m so proud of you, like
when you put out the recyclables every week, or when you try your best
to buy merchandise with the least amount of packaging.
However, there are other times when I’m so sad by your decisions. Like
when you decided to take an Uber to the American Airlines Arena from
your Brickell office instead of taking the Metromover. Or like that time
that you couldn’t find the garbage can at the beach and you buried the
plastic cup you were using.
I’m getting old, and I’m getting tired. I need your help. I need you to
understand that there’s only so much that I can do. I need you to think
hard about how long you shower for, that I need you to plant some extra
trees and just use a reusable water bottle instead of buying water in bulk
I’ve worked really hard all my life to bring you beauty, to give you places
to be inspired in, to allow you to roam throughout the globe and feel
fortunate to call this place home. So please, you’re an adult now… do
your part for me.
Not to sound cliché (but I am your mother), you have to rethink, reuse
and recycle as much as possible. Carpool or use mass transit when
you can, eat locally so that energy isn’t spent on transporting costly
ingredients from other parts of the world.
In the end, I just ask that you be smart, responsible and good to me. I
will, in turn, continue to be good to you.
Love you tons,
