I used to attend a church, not because I’m religious, but because I love the rich, complex music that I only find in a church (and only in the traditional worship services). This particular church loved flowers and they loved their Christmas tree. At Christmas-time, no matter who you are in the Western traditions, the sentiment is about love. I wanted this to be softer than the the usual vibrant reds and greens. I wanted gentleness. I wanted to surprise so that, when viewed, “Love” becomes meaningful—if only for a moment.
