This blanket represents the enveloping, comforting quality of “blanketness.” This is not a beautiful blanket, but it has clearly served someone well. In a perfect world, it’s important that blankets continue to warm and secure the humans they wrap. I’ve lived here all my life, many years unaware of the needs of others. Gifts of warmth to those in need have become an essential part of my endeavors over the past several decades. This blanket stands as a reminder of these efforts.
