i wanna, i do

i wanna be a sustainable land use nutrition agronimist,

a tree and climate finance futurist

at the intersection of the land, the business, the people, the sky,

don’t ask me why

i feel so strongly about it

but i do

for you.

.

i wanna explain photosynthesis to bankers, how trees make wood

the carbon, the soils, the mineral oils

how it all connects, how it should

so they can decide if they could

to put the money where the good

is, if they should

care.

.

i dare you to think about this: not later but now

the if when why and how

because wow,

the best time to plant a tree was ten years ago, not now.

.

we can do a lot, it’s not too late

when was the last time you ate

a thing you knew how it landed on your plate

a cocoa puff let’s say

that was shipped all the way

and back

around the world

to be placed in a bowl and nurture your soul (on Monday morning when you need it more)

but rob someone else’s —- goals.

.

these are the thin cocktail glass illusions of our progress

but i digress.

i wanna,

i do

for you.
