9 muses musing - SHARING

"Love is the source of sharing." -- Susan Polis Schutz

The Holidays, no matter how you celebrate them, always present a conundrum.  We rail against the commercialism of the season, yet embrace the symbolism it represents.  Of joy.  Of compassion.  Of sharing.  We complain about the pains of shopping or spending too much money, yet delight in the happiness of an opened gift, food lovingly prepared and shared, gatherings of friends and family.  However you celebrate at this time of year, I wish for you and your loved ones the love that comes from sharing.

What thoughts or images evoke the feeling of SHARING for you?
Please link your blog or flickr url in the link provided below.

Your creative holiday prompt for tomorrow is: STORIES.

Today's giveaway is the book 50 Photographers You Should Know.
Note that it's not the 50 best photographers, or most well known,
just 50 that you might want to have on your radar. 
I recently toured the Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibit at SFMOMA in San Francisco

and pored through this in the shop afterward (he's included).  Enjoy!

cheers to you and yours,

It is far too easy to forget the joy of sharing and let the stress become overwhelming - thanks for this little focus adjustment.
