The Mindful Writing Challenge is to write a small stone every day this January. You can read more about the challenge here. I definitely like the practice of writing small stones and so I’m going to play along. Whether I post my small stone here on my blog, or on Facebook, or perhaps just keep it in a journal, taking time every day “To pay attention. Be astonished. Speak about it” keeps me right on track with those Instructions for Living a Life so wisely offered by Mary Oliver, that I wish to keep as a guiding mantra for my own journey.
My stone for today:
It has taken me years to learn perfectly the courage
With which to reach into my own self
And withdraw the shadows.
