Mindful Writing a la 2019

Party over
a few crumbs
and the moon
to nibble on.

And so it begins again–the practice of mindful writing for January. Crumbs are words offered here as small stones: a small stone is a short piece of writing that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment. This will be my eighth year, and I’m sure the moon will surface in these writings along with, blue, gratitude, whimsy, wonder and hopefully humor.

I’m not as enthusiastic at this time to write or paint, however the best way to plow through these artist slumps is to practice. A nibble here and there often leads to bouquets and banquets. At least I can say that I’m trying. And then again, there’s always the moon…

  1. Hi Andrea…I am inspired by your intention to begin writing small stones again this January. I think I will attempt the same thing. Long overdue. I’ve been away from the dailiness of it for several years. Happy New Year to you!

  2. I did the small stones for so many years – it was a good discipline. I think I may have even “met” you through the stones. (Also azcanyonwren!) You inspire me to maybe start again for the month of January. At any rate, I’ll look forward to your stones. (The party isn’t over yet…)

  3. Yay Barb–we did meet through “the small stones” along with Cynthia (acanyonwren), in what seems like eons ago. Welcome back and let me know if you are writing–(send a link) to your blog. I hope I still have what it takes to write daily. Thanks for checking in and best wishes for the coming year. Andrea
