The River of Stones in July

July sees a new month-long challenge to write a daily 'small stone'. I'm so very glad I took up the January challenge and amazed to be still doing it.  For such a small thing, it's been astonishingly fruitful, both as a practice of presence and observation and as a way to hone my writing (though the latter was not the intention; the intention is much more to get beyond the ego-involvement implied in that, and paradoxically...). I hope even more people will give it a go this time.

Fiona and Kaspa talk about 'small stones' and their 'Writing Our Way Home' online community in the latest Woodrat Podcast - some quietly resonant and occasionally uncomfortably, creatively provoking stuff.
