Four More Small Stones

I would like to share with you another four of my “small stones”. I am finding it a really helpful exercise to have a focus for daily writing.

  Just Checking – small stone 13

I am cuddling a machine, while my soft and tender flesh is being compressed between two cold hard plates; first one side and then the other – twice each.

The brief pain each time is well worth it, to know that another intruder has not found its way in.

My Study – small stone 14

 My study is my library, my picture gallery, my writing and scrapbook area, and my work room.

Its large window provides a view of grass and trees, through which I see a road, parts of houses and the sky.

Perhaps though, if I had an attic room with a blank wall at the window, I would get more writing done.

Kookaburra – small stone 15

  Kookaburra pulls a worm from the damp earth. She flies up with it to a branch, where her youngster waits impatiently.

  Baby squawks and snatches desperately. Their large beaks tussle and clack. Chuckling insistently, Mother makes the young one break up the morsel before he swallows it.

  Meanwhile, father looks on from a nearby branch, assuring himself that his offspring is well protected and the lesson well learned.


  Blossom – small stone 16

  I don’t know what this flower is, but its vibrant red and beautiful shape stopped me in my tracks as I walked through the park.

  It stood out against the lush green grass, and obviously likes this year’s cooler-than-normal summer and extra rain.

If you would like to join in this mindful daily writing exercise, check it out here.

The current project goes for the month of January, but if you wish, you can write every day for as long as you like. Some people have been doing this daily exercise for five years!

You can also check out my novel, Ben’s Challenge, in print or kindle format, here.
