Help Needed . . . for a couple of love birds

My friend Fiona of Planting Words and other blogs fame is getting married on the 18th June - all very exciting.  She and her fiance Kaspa have asked for a special wedding present, no not some luxury item for their home, but a moment of our time, to stop and observe something carefully and write it down and post it on their Wedding Stones blog.  Now I know that you probably don't know Fiona or Kaspa but they are on a mission - here's what Fiona and Kaspa have to say;

As you know, we are both on a mission to help the world connect with the world through writing. We are also getting married on Saturday the 18th of June.

For our fantasy wedding present, we are asking people across the world to write us a ‘small stone’ and send it to us here.

A small stone is a short piece of observational writing – simply pay attention to something properly and then write it down. Find out more about small stones here.

You can find out all about our project at our website, Wedding Small Stones, and you can also read our blog at A River of Stones. If you get bitten by the small-stone-writing bug we also have a challenge coming up, when we’ll be challenging you to notice one thing every day during July and write it down.

Thank you for listening, and we hope we’ll be returning from our honeymoon to an inbox crammed with small stones, including yours.

Warmest, Kaspa & Fiona
Seems such a lovely idea and a great gift even if you don't know them.  Please go and have a look at what they are both doing over at Writing Our Way Home, you might even be tempted to write something for them yourself.
