Small Stones (1)-Him

he rocked on his haunches cupping the glass of tea the winter sun shining in his face looking at the flower beds lost in thought unmindful of the hordes of people walking by

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 โ€œalive and alertโ€ status. Involve yourself with a new set of eyes, ears, nose, mouth, fingers, feelings and mind. This is Mindful Writing at its best.

      1. The one explanation you’ve given is from http://www.writingourwayhome.com, I guess. I also found another link that said a small stone is a very short piece of writing that describes something as precisely as possible. That, then, is not for guys like me. ๐Ÿ˜

        I think you’d do a great job with that (2) as well, although I personally would prefer it if you wrote relatively longform.

      2. Great research!
        The website for Writing Our Way Home is what inspired this piece. I was totally taken in by the concept of communicating precisely, little moments that leave a mark on us. A ray of sunlight, a blade of grass, a street urchin, the whistle of a train… It could be anything ๐Ÿ™‚

      3. To be honest, I only googled “small stone writing,” so I can’t claim that as research. But yes, the concept is beautiful and brilliant. And it’d make a huge difference in the hands of people like you.
        All the best!
