small stones - blogsplash

a little project i'm taking part in.....;)


Kaspa & Fiona have taken over my blog for today, because they
need our help.

They are both on a mission to help the world connect with the world
through writing. They are also getting married on Saturday the 18th of

For their fantasy wedding present, they are asking people across the
world to write them a ‘small stone’ and post it on their blogs or on
Facebook or Twitter.

A small stone is a short piece of observational writing – simply pay
attention to something properly and then write it down. Find out more
about small stones here.

If you’re willing to help, we’d love you to do things:

1) Re-post this blog on your own blog any time before June the 18th and
give your readers a chance to hear about what we’re doing. You can
simply copy and paste the text, or you can find the html

2) Write us a small stone on our wedding day whilst we’re saying our
vows and eating cake, post it on your blog, and send
it to us.

You can find out more about our project at our website, Wedding Small
, and you can also read our blog at A River of Stones.

We also have a July challenge coming soon, when we’ll be challenging
you to notice one thing every day during July and write it down.

Thank you for listening, and we hope we’ll be returning from our
honeymoon to an inbox crammed with small stones, including yours.

Kaspa &  Fiona


although i fell out of the habit {what? who? me?} -- i started writing my own small stones here -- as part of the January challenge and plan to take part in July's. it's a lovely, simple exercise in mindfulness -- something i perpetually struggle with...;) 


  1. do you unschool your kids?
    i did that with mine for a few years!
    isn't that crazy?

    i pulled them from private school and did our thing. i'd also unschooled mary when she was much younger. she went to school for the middle grades but came back home for a year.

    now they are both getting big and wanted to go back to school.

    they drove me NUts, but i'll Never regret 'doing it myself'
    they are smart and non judgemental and educated beyond their peers, and they know how THey learn best. They know how to learn.
    Kids don't learn that in school.
    now won't i feel silly if you don't unschool your kids and that banner is just like...

  2. oh also. yesh. i do like your other blogs, but i felt like i 'identified' with this one the most.

  3. Thanks for reposting this, Mel. Looking forward to your stone.
