Small Stones – January 11, 2015

Waiting

I sit here procrastinating

Waiting for tomorrow

Work surrounds me, waiting to be done

Things need to be sorted and put away

But I wait

Why?

Is it the unknown of what tomorrow brings

or do I need this time to reflect on happier times

or just be thankful for every precious moment

Waiting!

….time to get back to work

It will make the waiting go faster

What are small stones?

A small stone is a short piece of writing (any style) that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment for you. The process of discovering small stones is as significant as the finished creation. Searching for small stones encourages you to keep your senses on the “alive and alert” status. Involve yourself with a new set of eyes, ears, nose, mouth, fingers, feelings and mind. In short … OPEN, OPEN, OPEN!

Small Stones – January 5, 2015

….the first day back to work

A New Year

The car instinctively knew where to park

Making its way into a spot that really wasn’t a spot

But the lot had become too small for our growing staff

And no one car pools.

The cold Arctic air bit my face as I gingerly placed

My feet on the icy surface

Hoping that my boots wouldn’t let me down, literally.

The cold easily penetrated my thin inadequate gloves

But I knew that the walk to the door would take less than a minute

Sweet Miss M greeted me, as she does every morning

Opening the door to a warm and welcoming place

This gesture was even more appreciated today

As I had forgotten my swipe key

Had I really been away for two weeks?

The morning was already busy with excitement

Children eager to share their stories and

Teachers busy, preparing for their day

The New Year begins, a new day, just like any other

But with renewed hope and promise of good things to come.
