Book Meme Tag


A big howdy to Ebeth who tagged me.

This one made the rounds a while back, but it was quite a fun one.

Grab the book CLOSEST to you,. [No cheating!] Go to page 56 and [I had to go to page 57 because there was just a picture on page 56] and type the 5th sentence. And then the next 2-5 lines after that. Name the book. [Duh!] Tag 5 folks.


When I saw the instructions, I thought, "oh, gee, there's only one book within reach..not even two equidistant to select from, and given the book, it's bound to bore." But how wrong I was.

Especially when it's taken out of context!

"This element of risk provides excitement for me, and I hope also for the onlooker."

Wow.

:-D [It wasn't *really* in bold, but I had to coke back laughing.] Wow. Too bad I have to give the next couple of lines:


"Flowers are inherently transitory and delicate. They live and change almost as you look at them and in a day or two they may have withered away. In this study I have tried to capture some of their ephemeral nature."


The book?


"Step-by-Step Watercolor Painting" by the Alexander Brothers


Which is quite a nice book to pull down if you're trying to refresh the memory on technique if you haven't done it in a while.


Now the fun part. Tag five people and tell them in their comboxes.


1. Esther in Hawaii

2. Mac in England

3. Digi 'cuz.


5. And Jackie, because I know she actually has a lot more books than kids.


And if you're saying "dammit I want to do the meme" I would have tagged Dr Peter, and if he reads this he can use the combox and post as Peter of the Amazing Wolverine Tribe.
[Stephen? combox is open dude. Do you have any friends who work for the Royal Shakespeare Co. A young American College student I know who's been doing a semester in the UK will work under the table licking the dust off the stage with her tongue in exchange for a cot and a hot meal now and again! One hesitates, because you might have the script of "Taboo" next to you. :-D]]
