There comes a time to slow down,
a time for simple living.
There comes a time to attune to the rhythm of your hands
the swish, swish, swish of the willow moving through them.
There comes a time to cut the sticks and a time to leave them to dry.
There comes a time to concentrate on only one thing and get lost in the endless repetition.
And then there is a basket, wobbly and new, made from your own two hands.
This is what I do, this is what I live, this is what I teach.
If you would like to learn from me I have a free online course for beginners to get you started.
