Thank you. It is the coast that is suffering the worst of the weather, and river flood plains. Fortunately I am not too near any of those though roads can be subject to flooding from run-off from fields and strong winds do bring down branches.

I hope the storms don’t cause too much trouble.

Thanks all for your concern, but I am relatively safe where I live, I was thinking of those more vulnerable. They say it should be improving within the next few days, but since we get what the US has finished with no doubt there is more lining up!

I’m hoping you can help me understand “stones” better, as I can’t seem to get a good explanation of the form anywhere. It looks like haiku–but there must be more to it, perhaps the theme or something? If you have time, I’m your student!

A ‘small stone’ is simply a moment of awareness gleaned from observation. They can take any form you like, poetry or prose, they can be expressed as haiku, which lends itself very well to the idea, or any other strict form if you wish. Basically there are no ‘rules’. I tend to make mine a bit poetic but they don’t need to be. Take a look at http://www.writingourwayhome.com/small-stones, which has a thorough explanation, and look at some of the other small stone blogs listed on my other stones page for some idea of how to proceed. There is also a small stone community on Facebook. Hope this helps! :-)

Oh thank you so much–other than FB, which I don’t do, this will be very helpful! I appreciate you taking the time to answer my query.

Glad to help. :-)
