At first, I was a little hesitant and felt rather silly looking for a basket. Then the effects of the bottle of wine kicked in which sparked my curiosity.
I rummaged through my storage boxes. Just as I was about to give up, I thought ‘if I can’t find it in the next box, I’m done!’ Opening the box and removing the paper stuffing revealed something wrapped in a woollen shawl.
To be honest, I could not recall seeing this before. Carefully lifting it out of the box, I sat it on the floor and stared at it for a while.
Removing the shawl exposed a basket filled with old family images, some old maps, a head scarf, a pottery goblet and cup and a rather odd-looking clock.
Maybe I threw these things in here when we were researching, years ago, however I couldn’t remember.
“Seek the basket we left for you. Take what lies within, follow your hearts and let me guide you on yet another journey of your dreams.”
