What is a Tiny Event?

Something happened.

It happened while I was sitting on my porch in the morning, drinking coffee, eating toast, and reading the New Yorker – same thing I do every morning – one of the reliable rituals that make me feel at ease.  It was a very small thing.  But this small thing struck me and made me want to write it down.

It would only take a sentence. I thought – how will I write it? There are many ways I can do it but which one is the best. I decided to write the tiny event in multiple ways. I decided not to choose.

I decided it would be an interesting challenge to write about a tiny event a day in this same manner.  Rendering a tiny event in 6 ways (though I’m allowed to do more) sounds manageable to me. So I have gave myself this task.  And then my task changed.
