Decorative Trim

Ever noticed the decorative trim on buildings?  It took design and construction, time and materials, yet it serves no practical function.  So you have to wonder, what value drives its creation?

I suppose it could be simple vanity.  But could it carry a secret significance?  Isn’t it a gift to te community?  It increases the joy of everyone who takes the time to notice it.

What if we made our own “decorative trim” into a community contribution?  A supportive ribbon, wristband, or shirt.  A well-kept flower-box or garden.  A smile.  Suddenly it’s not just trim, it’s connection.
