Worked late, and didn't get a photo today, but I was ready for that - I had taken photos of the basket I made for my sister, and couldn't post them until after she received it. So, here it is - made from strips of willow bark that I harvested over the summer, woven in a diagonal plait. A wider piece of the bark was folded over for the rim, and mother-of-pearl buttons are sewn on for decoration. By the way, she loved it!
Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and simple, to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.
