The River of Stones

Yosemite, 2009

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite
William Blake

To begin this new year, I am joining A River of Stones for the month of January. Each day I will post my own small stone, a very short piece of writing that precisely captures a fully engaged moment. 

January 1 - Small Stone

From the corner chair this morning, the light streamed through glass, the back of the chair and down the table, illuminating porcelain, the curve of his cheek.


  1. Happy New Year! It's nice to jump into the river and see this place first. Your stone is lovely.

    Here's mine:
    stone one

  2. Following where the light takes you

    You are a versatile and gifted writer

    I look forward to your small stones

  3. Happy New Year! May your rocks be smoothed and rounded by the water. And not thrown. Unless necessary.

  5. There are so many stones to see. I hope to hop in different places to be both inspired and delighted. Happy New Year!

  6. Well I love Blake. His lines contain a universe in a few syllables don't they? And your small stone is a world in itself too, a very beautiful one in which someone takes the time to observe the way light falls on the curve of a porcelain cheek. Lovely.

  7. I wanna do this! I love yours...

  8. What a beautiful idea. Perhaps I shall join you now and then.

  9. My blog pal Lorianne is participating in River of Stones as well:

    It's an interesting idea!

  10. I love this idea and I love your writing. This is beautiful, entirely.

  11. it's a poem, haunting and bright.

    what a great idea!

  12. A noble effort which I could not emulate, but deeply envy. I look forward to your posts. Blessings!

  13. Love it! I want to be a small stoner too!

  14. Oh. So that is what is going on. I probably should have caught up with your blog at the beginning where I left off and not at the end working backwards.
