A Gathering of "Small Stones"...

From what I can gather :) the practice of writing “Small Stones” is a way of being mindful, aware, noticing, seeing the world, our environment, both inner and outer, with new eyes. It is about noticing and writing down these little stones of awareness on a daily basis for the month of January. I was first introduced to “Small Stones” by Hilaire over at Storing Magic. To find out how it all began on the original site Click here. And here are a few “stones” I have gathered in my “noticing” this month with some photos that seemed to fit… Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for these "stones," for your reminder (I can use these EVERY DAY----stones and reminders!) and for the link to that lovely website (I've downloaded the free HOW TO WRITE YOUR OWN WAY HOME, which is delightful). Hmmm. . . such inspiration!

  4. your small stones are lovely and i like the way you presented them, each written on top of a photo. I looked at the site. Interesting. To me these are like little haiku in their brevity.

    1. Thank you Suki ~ Evidently there are many different ways to write them - long prose, poetry or haiku. Hilaire, at Storing Magic, link in post, writes what seems like short Haikus... I need to investigate the Small Stones website more.

    1. Thanks Carole! :) I actually was in the car when I noticed the sky, and it looked just like whipped mashed potatoes! I don't believe I had ever seen the clouds like that before. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me. So the picture for that one is a substitute :)

    1. Cathy - found your lovely Haiku's on your web site today... I'm new to writing "small stones" but it seems very similar to Haiku...

  8. The small stones work really well with the pictures - what a lovely idea! I particularly like the first one - who is waiting indeed!

    I love the way the River is swelling and moving into new landscapes...
