“The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.”
– Henry Miller
It’s lovely to have a small stone up at Fiona Robyn’s a handful of stones.
Fiona describes a ‘small stone’ as “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 further will encourage you to keep your eyes (and ears, nose, mouth, fingers, feelings and mind) open.”

A lovely quote and a lovely stone today, Miss Michelle!
Thank you, Ms Red and Ms Red Bird Chronicles.
I love this idea and your header, good start. Henry Miller should be talked about and quoted more in our lives.
It’s lovely, Michelle.
I love it, Michelle. Your piece is so beautiful. I also love the description of a small stone. It’s like finding a gorgeous stone on a path in the woods. Your words are a gift:)
Travelling Sue and Jules, it’s wonderful to see you. Thank you.
A flower knows a flower. Beautiful!
Hi Michelle! I’m always happy to be taken into Henry Miller’s “presence” and this one is particularly poignant by your match with the “small stone.” I’ll look for you on Facebook (?)
