[personal profile] holyoutlaw asked: what are your optimistic dreams for the future, from your hoped-for life span through a few years after?

I think it's harder to be realistically optimistic than pessimistic, which is why I ask this.

I've been thinking about this and having a hard time with it, so I'm going to be unrealistically optimistic.

For myself:
My health will improve dramatically.
I'll become much more financially secure.
I'll figure out what I want regarding relationships, work, and my life in general! Magically things will just kind of work out! I will live close to nature but also close to my friends, in a charmed and happy life; a life filled with service to others.

For the world:
Suddenly humanity figures its shit out! We enter a golden age of peace, justice, creativity and problem solving. We work on healing the planet and ourselves. Art and research thrive.
Health care is free.
We send missions to Mars.
People can sleep as much as they want, if they want to.
No one lives in poverty.
In no country or place on Earth is it illegal to be queer, brown, or an immigrant.
Violence? What violence?
Negative carbon impact, clean water, etc.
Universal access for PWD for all public buildings!
No more kyriarchy!

How's that. Let's get started!

Unlimited sleep -- that's my kind of future!

I'm often the glass 1/3rd full person, but I do think there's value in dreaming big. Trying the best we can can't guarantee success, but it means a little more hope in our days.

I want to live in your future! Plus jetpacks so we can all fly everywhere (PWD visiting friends in third-floor walkups, hurrah).

Yeah, combing "realistic" with "optimism" is kinda tricky.
