Small Stones for January 2014


So, today is Jan. 1 2014. This past fall, I picked up a copy of A Year with Rilke, a daily reader from the writings of Rainer Maria Rilke, translation by Joanna Macy & Anita Barrows.

Rainer Maria Rilke

Since, like many of my writer friends, my pile of books still unread is threatening to topple over, I set this one aside to begin on January 1st. The first entry is about beginnings. And today, I begin the Mindful Writing Challenge for 2014.

The year begins
on a bright note of sky.

Who can regret the chill air
when there is such a blue?
