EZ.. . really,really  EZ Bookworm MEME...maybe for a green-eyed cat... 
My friend Ann Cummings  just sent along what she describes as an "easy meme"...
HA! I say this is a mighty challenge...

Here are the EZ rules:

1. Grab the nearest book.  (not so EZ to do on my desk! )

2. Open the book to page 56.  ( wait...I need my glasses)
3. Find the fifth sentence. (OK)

4. Post the text of the next two to five sentences. (OK! I'm on it! )

5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book or the intellectual one.
Pick the Closest.
 (the closest, eh???)

6. Tag five people to do the same


HMMMmmmmmm!!!! l I see 50 reference books...NAH.... Not a sentence among ‘em. There's a novel down by my feet...one of the high adventure and romance Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon  a look at this depiction of Jamie Fraser, the hero!!! ...I'm on the fifth in the series...each is about 1,000 pages long...but that's not "closest"...

YES...I see a stack of poetry books...(Billy Collins, the 44th Poet Laureate of the United States!) Here he is reading of mice and fire  But, alas!... none of these poetry books have 50 pages...

What's this/\??   EUREKA! A book right here on the desk... Awakening Loving-Kindness by one of my all-time favorite teachers, Pema Chödrön. . Here is what is on page 56, that is the 5th sentence:

  "Along with being very precise about our world, there's also always space around us that is called gentleness: we allow ourselves to experience how large and fluid and full of color and energy our world is. This space is our circle. "  

..SO, if you are reading this, certainly YOU must be  part of that space and that  circle, and I am grateful for this. . .AND... now comes the fun part - tagging FIVE others to play along with this bookworm meme!  Here they are: 

  1. Pete Jalbert http://activerain.com/petejalbert 
  2. Jo-Anne Smith  http://activerain.com/bellevillehomes
  3. Lola Audu http://activerain.com/auduhomes 
  4. Joan Whitebook http://activerain.com/nhbuyerrep 
  5. Brad Andersohn http://activerain.com/activebrad 

Have fun!!  Post a link to your meme here in the comments so we don't miss reading it! OK?

and I hope you find this MEME as much fun as I did...

"Along with being very precise about our world, there's also always space around us that is called gentleness: we allow ourselves to experience how large and fluid and full of color and energy our world is. This space is our circle. " 

This is a great line - worth pondering.
