I've written about my fondness for Valentine's Day before in this blog. For me, it's not about the romantic love and teddy bears; however, I did read far too much into those conversation hearts that I received from grade school crushes. I just loved the bright colors at the end of winter, the sweetness of the candy, and the paper heart garlands. (Garlands are one of my favorite things, in general). Most of all, the cards that we gave each other were/are my favorite -- in particular, and here is where I make enemies, the puns. I love dumb puns. Some of you may argue that all puns are dumb. We can agree to disagree.
Now excuse me while I descend the "Valentine's Day" soap box amd ascend the "Save The Earth" stump. In her book, Braiding Sweetgrass, Robin Wall Kimmerer writes about the Earth loving us and that we should be loving the Earth right back! I mean we are in support of one another and in committed relationships with each other, but we humans don't always do our job in loving back. It's like we need to take a minute and reflect on our habits and mindsets to see if they are in a loving way to our beloved Earth.
So, in a sort of silly and fun attempt, I decided to create Valentines for the Earth that are full of puns, of course.
