Choose your stone!

To my dear readers,

As you may have noticed, January has come and gone in a cascade of small stones. If you've been involved in the small stones project as well, I hope you've enjoyed as much as I have the sounds of the shifting river of stones as it has flowed past us every day and has carried us along. It's been such a wonderful experience reading everyone's observations this past month. Being invited into another person's moment of stillness, of observation is powerful and touching. Something about a small stone draws you in. You know that it was written in order to capture
that feeling, that brief moment of clarity that eludes us most of our lives. Fleeting and profound.

So I can't say thank you enough to Fiona and Kaspa, what a wonderful project! Thank you.

And to my dear readers, people who have actually read my blog and clicked to follow it....I can't tell you how touched I am. Thank you for reading, for commenting. It's meant so much to me. Your support has spurred me on.

You may or may not already know that Fiona and Kaspa are asking for submissions of people's stones to be made into a collection (wow!). I'll be choosing my own favourites to submit, but I'd quite like to know what you think! Reply as a comment to this email, let me know your favourite stone(s). What can I say, I'm curious what you think :)


  1. I really liked your "phonecall" stone - we've all done it, and probably never noticed. It's almost as if we've been conditioned to give "I'm fine" as the automatic response to the ubiquitous "how are you?" question, without really hearing the question or thinking about the answer! Mel x

  2. Thanks Mel :) It's funny, a number of people have commented (not here) that they also like "phonecall" and it's one that I thought wouldn't be very interesting to most!
