Beginagain #2 – Hunger Stones

Morning Everyone!

Ready to begin again with a new writing prompt?

Here goes … Read this article from Smithsonian.com about hydrological landmarks in Czech Republic. Click this link: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/hunger-stones-emerge-drought-parched-czech-river-180970130/

Now … Jot down a few phrases or questions that snag your mind while reading.

A few of my mind snags include:

  1. “When you see me, weep.”
  2. What else is discovered when the waters recede?
  3. What happens when the opposite occurs, when something long buried is unearthed?
  4. What happens when a hunger stone message has your name on it?

Or, consider this …

One of my favorite Bible stories is that of Joshua. Go ahead and read chapters one through four in Joshua right now. Pay particular attention to Joshua 4:9

Then Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of the Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests who bore the ark of the covenant stood; and they are there to this day. (NKJV)

Each of the twelve tribes gathered twelve stones from the midst of the Jordan to take into Gilgal to be a memorial to the Lord.

But in verse nine, Joshua gathers twelve stones and sets them up in the midst of the Jordan, where the priests stood in obedience.

Think about that.

Now, write. You are the (tourist/archaeologist/whatever) who discovers the stones in the midst of the Jordan. It’s quite a find, but there is a group of people who don’t want the ancient journey to be proven. They will do anything to stop you from telling the story.
