Small Stone #31
At bird-feeding time – a constant battle between me and my cat. His one desire - to interfere with my life saving mission. But Cat and Bird and Hunt and Death are the reality – I am the interference.
They say it takes a month to break a habit - in my case, it has taken a month to make one. It's the last day of writing 'Small Stones' for the 'River of Stones' Month at 'Writing Your Way Home' - but it will not be the last for me.
An abbreviated form of what Kathleen Adams described (in her book 'Journal to the Self') as 'Captured Moments', I have grown to love this very simple practice of noticing one thing, mindfully, each day, so much that I will continue to post my own daily 'Stones' on a new small blog. (I will link to it here at Autumn Cottage Diarist, as soon as it is in place). I'll sometimes include images as well - though it has been a pleasure to spend a month just using words, without the pressure to always capture an accompanying image - which sometimes are not appropriate or possible.
But for now, I step out of the 'River of Stones' - and back to sharing more life with you here at the Cottage. Thank you, all of you who have read and commented upon my daily postings - I appreciate your responses (as I do ALL responses to my posts here) immensely.
