#LettersFromaFuture #82

Dear Dr. McGuire,

I have tried to be an ethical eater all of my life. I have only consumed ethically-grown, low-water utilization, organic, local vegan crops for the last three decades of my life. I had no idea just how sentient these plants were. When you get your plant-to-human language translator working, please send them our most sincere apologies. You know, before they decide to get their revenge.

-Someone who is wondering what to eat now


PO Box 159 at the Brooksdale Post Office is a bit unusual. Every week, it receives letters from many different people from many different times in the future. Many times, the letters are well-wishes and advice from the loved ones of people of our time. Other times, there are dire warnings.

No one seems to know how or why these letters started coming to PO Box 159. They simply appear. The future these letters describe seems to be in constant flux; one day the year 2098 sounds like a dystopian hellscape, the next day a letter will appear describing a garden of Eden.

Emma Reilly, the owner of PO Box 159, shares the letters she receives through this blog every Tuesday.
