Quick! Pick Up The Book That Is Closest To You Right Now!

This is one of friend's that I got to photograph this week-
he's grown into a fine looking young boy (or maybe a beautiful girl!)

I had probelms getting links to work today which is why I added the actual blog name below. Sorry for the inconvenience - it's either me or blogger!

I am, in general, not much of 'join in' kind of gal, but this one, posted on Judy Sall's, ( blog got me. Judy got the idea from Michelle's blog, ( and before that I don't have a clue though surely it has been around before. I picked up a book that was on the floor near me and this is the fifth sentence on the page:

"...there is nothing on your life of significant value that you didn't risk to get..."

Ohhhhh... probably true since I have always been somewhat of a risk taker - though that is less & less evident as I get older - which I am not terribly happy about. The simple directions are right below - so give it a try and maybe give yourself come shivers! If you are wondering where I have been - I've had a bug that has left me with little ambition to do anything other than sit and stare aimlessly into space!

Closest book to you
How to play: * Grab the book nearest you. Right now. * Turn to page 56. * Find the fifth sentence. * Post that sentence along with these instructions in a note in your BLOG. * Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual... Use the CLOSEST

Never mind the book! WHAT is that incredible creature? A fox? Is he special or is that a common coloration?

scuze me...I marvel at bluejays too.

What a beautiful fox!!! I love it that the fox population is currently on the rise here so that we get to see them fequently.

The sentence thing didn't work for me... closest two books... one had a full-spread picture of the Aurora Borealis on page 56. The other is a text about how to write HTML and the sentence contains sequential steps starting with "Choose File > Open, Open File, or Open Page..." I guess if we take it as a metaphor, it might be interesting.
