Journey Stone #5


Journey Stone #5 Temptation

Maybe I should quit now.
Nothing bad has actually happened, yet.
But, you can’t really know.
And besides, at least I tried.
I can always come back,
do it some other time, later,

  1. A quitter you will never, so of course try it later, some other time. No nothing bad has happened. We are so lucky.

      I didn’t quit at all. But the temptation to do so was heavy for a few hours. Thanks to a very good friend, and my journal, that all got turned around. I really laughed when I pulled this stone out of the basket this morning. Could immediately hear those tempting words, having thought them so recently,

    I am so glad you are still along the river. I miss my daily stroll. Checking in today to see who is left among my favourite stopping spots and am glad you are continuing. I like how you picked a specific focus. After the direction of January new directions are needed, I find. I shall have to look for a map.

    Hi Margo. I made the Journey Stones when I was teaching and used them in the classroom to get people started, and to encourage them to stay on the page. I wanted to continue the stones, and I have so many of these that it was time to use them. They were perfect, and have been thinking to do this for a while. Just needed that extra little nudge. One could easily do the same with a dictionary, just open it blindly and drop a finger and go from there. These words however, were specifically chosen for the personal writing journey. I won’t run out any time too soon.
