Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

2020, Upstate New York.

On the winding rural street stands a large white house, with blue
shutters on every window, open and streaming with sunlight. The yard was
filled with bright flowers, blooming in every color of the rainbow, a
beautiful natural garden. Cutting the garden in half was a thin
cobblestone pathway leading to the tall columns around the entrance of
the house. A driveway on the side of the house leading to a detached,
yet color coordinated garage, energy efficient card parked in the
driveway along side three bicycles. The sounds of nature, and birds fill
the outside, and the sweet scent of a freshly cooked meal rushes you
upon nearing the door.

Inside this pretty little house lives a family. Once the door opens you
are rushed with the sounds of a dog barking, children laughing, and
cartoons very loud on the television in the living room. The two
children are ages 10 and 5, a perfect in between. The eldest was
watching the television, and the youngest chasing the young husky pup
around the house. In the kitchen a phone rings. A slightly tall woman,
around 28 years old nearly dropped the cookies she had just been pulling
out of the oven from the ring tone. She knew exactly who it was.
---time lapse---

By the the time the father of the house enters, the loud building had
already fallen silent. The kids were gone, the dog was curled up asleep,
and the woman as well had disappeared. All that was left of either of
them was a purple post-it note on the fridge.

"Hun, I'm sorry I had to leave so suddenly, but I will be home soon. I
had another phone call today..The kids are with my mom, you can pick
them up from school tomorrow. I love you.

He could do nothing but shake his head, get a drink out of the fridge
and head upstairs to bed.

Beautiful description, especially in the first paragraph. I agree wih Hannah, I could see it happening. Writing is a possible future for you. I think you write far better at 17 than I did!

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
