The program for our Basket Guild meeting tonight was learning the Karuk way of making beads with beargrass. The Karuk is a tribe in Northern California, and use the beads for ceremonial purposes. We are privileged to be allowed to learn this ancient technique!
It wasn't easy, though, and everyone was glad to have help from their neighbor!
We had a large turn-out in our new meeting place, which is nice and roomy, has a great kitchen, AND has cushioned chairs. Nice!
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.
Happy Trails, Buzz
