This has been one heck of a year over here in the Square Tooth/Mountain Man clan. It's been filled with many blessings and peaceful moments as well as some pretty rough patches--but, who's year hasn't? I've felt like a top spinning out of control for the last 10 months. I'm ready to reconnect, slow down, and pay attention.
The best part about writing small stones everyday is that the process of writing them provides me with the opportunity to focus on the present moment. The only way to truly describe what writing small stones is like is to borrow the words of Hafiz:
To be humble
So that God does not
Have to appear stingy.
O pray to be honest,
So that the Beloved is never miscast
As a cruel great miser.
I know you have a hundred complex cases
Against God in court,
But never mind, wayfarer,
Let's just get out of this mess
And pray to be loving and humble
So that the Friend will be forced to reveal
The process of writing anything can be powerful--(sometimes it's just for the writer, not the reader, but hopefully both.) Writing small stones can shine light on the miracles that live in each moment.
