My Gathering Basket

Attending Alastair Heseltine's fall basket making workshop has become a yearly ritual for me.  I love the quiet introspection it provides along with the good time shared with friends and neighbours.  And the basket that comes out of it is pretty good too.  This year's gathering basket will give me something to collect the bounty of harvest from the island, including these conference pears gifted to me this week from dear Susan and Deb.  When I first moved to the island someone told me that island living is incredibly rich.  Three years into my life here I know exactly what they meant.
