thin and bony

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!

    Your mom is so right. I am glad she can still enjoy something she loves and that you have captured the moment here to share with us. You are both in my hearts always. That you can spend time with her is a treasure. I could not with my own mother but I take it it was not meant to be. Take care.

    My goodness, you brought tears to my eyes this morning – twice! If I read it three times, I’d probably have the same experience. It brought back Mom so clearly – beautifully done.

      Thank you … it was a poignant moment for me to witness. She is eating so little.

      In many ways I’m glad it touched your heart, but hope in after-thoughts the memories are blessed ones rather than sad ones.


"Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me!"
