In an election year, trends are a bit more precarious. They aren’t always built on solid ground since the ground shifts from week to week. I believe the underlying purpose of a trend is to give us comfort. Trends tell us that there are other things going on besides the overstated obvious. They let us know that we still have the control to follow a whim if we wish, and life is good no matter what happens. Trends are our friends.
So let’s take comfort (there’s that word again) in knowing that we have our fashion, food and a wide variety of favorite trends firmly in tact at our beckon call. Over the years, trends come and go and may only last a few months. Like calling in a tree service, you can trim unwanted trends like dead branches, or you can keep a desirable trend with updates and modifications blossoming for seasons.
