“A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.”
This week our photo challenge, Curves, was timed beautifully as my husband and I had just spent a day sharing our beautiful city with some out-of-town guests. One of the highlights of our lovely Charleston is the beautiful work local Gullah artisans do to create sweetgrass baskets. Skills that were originally brought with slaves in the early 1700s and handed down for many generations, the baskets are made from the grasses and reeds that grow in our sandy soil. The baskets of Mary Jackson are featured in the Smithsonian American Art museum, which notes the graceful curves of her work.
Many thanks to those who sent along birthday wishes for my husband. Our celebration was a great success and we especially enjoyed sharing it with so many of our friends and family members.
