You can go on an adventure anywhere – to your backyard, along a wood fence, in school, or in an office building. Take along a sketchpad and journal. Doodle, jot down ideas. Oh – maybe you’ll take a camera and take some pictures!
On some adventures, it’s fun to find stones. According to some native peoples, stones you find can tell you stories. You gaze at them and see what pictures you see there. What story does each picture tell and do they tell one all together? What does each picture remind you of in your life – or about you today?
Maybe you like a texture on one part of a stone. Does that texture show you a picture or two? Do any ideas come to you from the feeling you get from holding the stone? Is that part of your story time today?
Here’s a favorite stone I found in an adventure in a gem and crystal festival I attended. It could be the stone of where I live in the Great Black Swamp. This stone speaks to us in different ways.
What might I find in a swamp today? What creatures lived in prehistoric swamps? I’ll bet there were some kind of dragonflies.
