Kasp and Fiona from Writing Our Way Home have invited us all during January to...Pay more attention to everything around us, the delightful, the ugly and the amazing and tell the world about it.
Pay more attention and fall in love with the world.
Our January '12 'river of stones' has begun!
Here's what to do.
1. Notice something properly every day during January.
2. Write it down.
Go out and buy yourself a gorgeous notebook, start writing your small stones, and you'll be in the river.
Use the hashtag #smallstone on twitter or go to the link for Kasp's and Fiona's bog and write your small stones there.
I received a journal as a Christmas gift and have been writing my "small stones" there, and once a week in January I will writing a round up of my week in my blog.
The dog's coat has been brushed and his white fluffy hair lies on the grass like cotton wool balls,soft and fluffy.
Small birds are watching from the trees in anticipation of a cosy lining for their nests and I am pleased we could help them.
I hear a hundred drums sounding a beat as round perfectly formed hailstones hit my windows. They are so forceful an intruder to my quiet morning.
The sound of waves crashing to the shore awakens me from my sleep and deafens, but it is only the wind on his wild rampage through the country.
The crisp fresh smell of newly ironed clothes leaves me satisfied with my achievement.
Two tiny toddlers laughing and screaming with the the sheer wonder and enjoyment of life. If only I could feel like them again even just for a minute.
Three crows fighting over some stale bread. Only one will win the bounty when their squabbling and squawking is over and as they fly away their feathers glisten in the rain.
The trees stand tall but look ugly in their nakedness as they wait for Spring and Mother Nature to clothe them in their greens and make them beautiful once more.
