Wrap around me, hold me tight
to stave off winter’s chill,
and promise when the springtime comes
you’ll wrap around me still.
Do you think that if we treated our things more like we treat our loved ones, we would waste less, breathe cleaner air, swim less polluted waters, or live in communion with healthier, more productive land? Wintertime is a wonderful time for family, friends, and the people we cherish most, but it’s also a wildly wasteful couple of months every year. Maybe it’s time we looked more closely at the reason for the season and put less energy into decorations.
