This is my symbol for my Merry Christmas wish:
It’s a piece of soap. It makes dirty things clean, and makes them smell like lavender.
It was made by me and a child, for fun.
It reminds me of those models of cells biology teachers assign in high school. (See the nucleus? “Life finds a way.”)
It’s green. We all need more green.
It’s backlit by a Christmas light. We all need more light too.
Merry Christmas, everyone, if that means something to you. And if it doesn’t–here’s to green, and light, and children, and sweetness.
