What are small stones?

A small stone is a short piece of writing (any style) that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment for you. The process of discovering small stones is as significant as the finished creation. Searching for small stones encourages you to keep your senses on the “alive and alert” status. Involve yourself with a new set of eyes, ears, nose, mouth, fingers, feelings and mind. In short … OPEN, OPEN, OPEN!

    I believe you have had a visitor, an angel perhaps? They’ve left you their heart. How wonderful is that!

      I believe it is from Tippy — she was our matriarch canine who went to the Rainbow Bridge in mid-March, after I provided palliative care for her for nearly 3 months. She was such a sweet spirit. There are times, I catch an image of her tail out of the corner of my eye. Yes, an angel visited. It IS wonderful!!

    Because, they hurt the losses. But the heart – the symbol of love says they are each within your heart. I loved this.

      It is the 2nd message heart stone I’ve found — one (the logo for my small stones), I unearthed in Sedona when I took a retreat trip with some energy sisters. This one, I discovered shortly after I was out playing with my “pups” … very strange place for it to be. I love love love it!!! Amazed it was heart shaped on both sides. There was a sense of peace attached to it. Thank you!!!

    I love this, such synchronicity.

    The heart shape is my “touchstone”…I love to see it as your mystery stone.
    Thanks for sharing. My condolences on all your losses the past year.
    Peace and love,
