Welcome 2011 and NaSmaStoMo

I'm participating in the National Small Stone Month (NaSmaStoMo) starting today.

First of all, here is an introduction to this new 31-day adventure from one of the creators:
Writing your own small stones
What is a small stone?

A small stone is a very short piece of writing that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment.

There are no strict rules for what makes a piece of writing a small stone, as there are for forms such as haiku. The process of finding small stones is as important as the finished product – searching for them will encourage you to keep your eyes (and ears, nose, mouth, fingers, feelings and mind) open.

I have been writing a daily small stone at a small stone for several years. I have recently started collecting other people’s stones at a handful of stones.
