A River of Stones

The eagle-eyed among you may have spotted that the "River of Stones" logo to the right has changed. The VERY eagle-eyed may also notice a new link in the list of my blogs to Stones From The Road.

The reason is simple - the River of Stones was a project that ran throughout January in which people from around the world wrote small observations every day about the world around them. I took part both by writing my own and by reading everyone else's. When it was over the organisers produced a book containing a selection of the best pieces. 

Now they are doing it again in July.

This time they are organising things slightly differently - which is why my "Small Stones" for July, and any that I write before then, are appearing on a separate blog. It has given me an idea though. When I was writing in January there were quite a lot of things I wrote that I thought would make very nice longer poems. So what I hope to do is post my short pieces of writing on Stones From The Road and here, when I can, post a kind of "extended remix" version with the pieces expanded into full length poems. 

Now, as everyone knows, I am always starting projects and not finishing them so it may or may not actually happen. Nevertheless that's the intention. I shall start today by going back and revisiting some of the ones from January. They will appear here in due course.
