God Slapped is and expression used when is struck with an idea, a thought or a a revolution of something new or exciting. I was working on my latest works and holding something in my hand when it came to me that the next step involved a real gate. I usually have a title which is related to the theme of Nature's soul. It seem to go hand in hand with my idea and statement.
