A River of Stones- Part II

Ah, June! Time to fire up this blog again. I will be participating in the July River of Stones challenge. The task is to pay attention, notice one detail a day, and write about it. Now I have to say I get plenty of opportunity to write daily haiku on NaHaiWriMo, so I’m thinking I might stick to prose again. But who knows? Tune in here July 1 to find out…


In January, I participated in the River of Stones project, led by Fiona and Kaspa. This had many wonderful lasting benefits, not the least of which was that I began to pay more attention to the world around me. It also culminated in a book, and I made many new cyber friends along the way. Now Fiona and Kaspa have a special request, so I am turning this blog post over to them:

They are both on a mission to help the world connect with the world through writing. They are also getting married on Saturday the 18th of June.

For their fantasy wedding present, they are asking people across the world to write them a ‘small stone’ and post it on their blogs or on Facebook or Twitter.

A small stone is a short piece of observational writing – simply pay attention to something properly and then write it down. Find out more about small stones here.

If you’re willing to help, we’d love you to do things:

1) Re-post this blog on your own blog any time before June the 18th and give your readers a chance to hear about what we’re doing. You can simply copy and paste the text, or you can find the htmlhere.

2) Write us a small stone on our wedding day whilst we’re saying our vows and eating cake, post it on your blog, and send it to us.

You can find out more about our project at our website, Wedding SmallStones, and you can also read our blog at A River of Stones.

We also have a July challenge coming soon, when we’ll be challenging you to notice one thing every day during July and write it down.

Thank you for listening, and we hope we’ll be returning from our honeymoon to an inbox crammed with small stones, including yours.

Kaspa & Fiona
