invitation no. 2: small things

Notice small things.

Make a list of 7 things you have noticed. Review your list and challenge yourself to notice even smaller things. Perhaps you noticed the dishes that need hand washed. Look again and learn to notice the way the soap bubbles crackle with tiny rainbows.

The world is full of ordinary moments and when noticed, they become special. Small things are magical. Writers notice the small things that the whole wide world bustles past. Train yourself to pay attention.


Open your blog and write a post. It doesn’t have to be a list of things you noticed…it just needs to be written…and shared.


Reply to this post, jot a note and paste your URL.


Pop around and visit some other blogs. Leave a comment about the ideas or the craft…encourage and soak up the magic that will find you.

grab an image for your blog

Use one of these images so we can find each other…and you can invite others to share their stories with us!

    1. Judy I’m having trouble leaving a comment on your blog, maybe because I’m WordPress… anyway. Happy Anniversary and thank you so much for your sharing of Spring with us… we need as much as we can to keep the natural world with us in this unnatural time..


    1. I tried learning you a comment my friend but I don’t have a google blog… so there’s an issue, still but it’s great to be writing with you and reading your spring words in this era of Corona Spring.. 🙂

    1. You’re not intruding! It’s an open community and I hope you’ll pass on the invitation to someone else who might like a little quiet magic. That’s the beauty of this place.
