Gifts (For Creative Tuesdays)
Over at Creative Tuesdays, this weeks theme is a parlay off the celebration one. It is, of course, Gift. Head on over and check out all the gifts prepared for you by the ultra-talented artists that contribute to Creative Tuesdays. And while you're there, read the guidelines and join in.
A bit of a background for this piece. I initially was going with the gifts under the Christmas tree idea, but then, I got to thinking, literally while I was putting the bulbs on the tree, that Gifts can be so many different things, and from there I came up with God and Country, partially due to a Smashing Pumpkins song that just happened to play while doing this, in which Billy Corgan, the lead singer, repeated God and Country a few times in the song. From there Family was easy, as was love. I have to admit, the last area remained empty for a while, which is completely ironic, as my workspace is filled with over 300 books, yet it took me a few days to come up with Knowledge anyhow.
