the emblem of the land i love
you know that box? the one where everything fits neatly inside? the one that stacks neatly with all of the other boxes? the one whose contents match the description printed on the label? that box?
i totally stepped out of that box for this challenge...
the emblem i chose for this week absolutely represents, to me, the spirit of America. no, i'm not a gearhead. i don't work on cars, i don't go to car shows, i definitely don't go to car races. heck, i barely even manage to wash my car! in fact, the car i drive today was chosen for me by someone else, so i sort of identify with this brand by sheer conincidence.
but, really, what's more American than good old General Motors? and who can't immediately identify the trademark Chevrolet bowtie? (i did learn that William Durant designed the bowtie in 1913, possibly gleaning inspiration from French wallpaper? who knew?) (there is a LOT more you could learn about the Chevy brand and its stable of cars. if you wanted to. i didn't really want to. but then again, this post isn't really about cars, right?)
me and my bowtie.
the emblem of the land i love...
the heartbeat of America.
