Summer Baskets

Summer baskets, just waiting to be lifted off their rural home's pantry shelf and filled to the happy brim with delicious lunch items of choice. Maybe herbed cucumber sandwiches on fresh baked bread, season-ripened fruit, sweet wine and dark chocolate. These two lovely beauties have been abandoned here far too long and someone's simple joys of a quiet forest or waterside picnic have been forfeited by a litany of chores and other important business in modern life. What if we balanced our modern responsibilities and consistent productive use of time instead with a few hours enjoying a simple meal outdoors, stretching out afterwards on a blanket with a book or facing upturned to the clouds? Seeing these old items, a woven mule's pannier and two simple baskets, l'm left yearning for just that, a little escape, a little something more. How about you? When was the last time you slipped away to eat outdoors and where did you picnic?
