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!

  4. The squirrels, chipmunks and migrating birds are indeed gathering, feasting, preparing for the long months ahead. I feel like I am doing the same, taking in as much glorious color and light as I can before the days grow even shorter, the palette more subtle.
