Small Stones

"Don't wait for the rain to stop. Climb out of your tent with your mind engaged and your senses ablaze and let the rain pour into you." 

--Kathleen Dean Moore 

Happy 1st of July! Today is what I think of as the "official" first day of summer. June is just tying up loose ends, but July is when SUMMER truly begins!

To kick it off - and hopefully make it last - I have joined an online community writing project called River of Stones

Facilitated by a groovy Buddhist writer chick and her husband, this project is designed to get you noticing what is going on in your world AND writing about it. 

A "small stone" is "a very short piece of writing that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment." So to write one you not only have to be writing, you have to be "fully engaging" with life. What a wonderful concept!
