A Blackbird Sings



I participated last January in a project called small stones, an exercise in mindfulness where I wrote a short, observant prose poem each day for a month. Some of these small stones -- and one of mine! -- were gathered and edited and published in a book just released today on the Kindle and will be available in paperback shortly. Edited by Fiona Robyn and Kaspalita, you can read more about the book here. I found the exercise incredibly helpful for my writing both online and off and would encourage you to try writing your own small stones.

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

  1. I assume you're in the book. Your small stone pieces were so compelling.

  3. Congratulations! I participated in there first book called, A River of Stones (oh something like that). It was indeed a great writing and observational exercise, and it's fun to see my work in print. I'll be buying the latest book as well, though I did not participate this time. They've done such a nice job putting this project together.

    Another fun project I've participated in is called The 100. 100 participants from all over the globe taking pictures with disposable cameras. My photos have not been upload yet, but it is great fun to look at people's work and their everyday lives. It's on-line if you want to ck it out.

  4. Your small stones have enriched my life to no small degree. Every one of them has caused me to catch my breath.

  5. How exciting! Please let us know when it's a paper book. I'm still really a fan of the paper book.
