I am it again!

Abigail has tagged me for the second meme of the week, but this one is a fun one, the idea being that you grab the book closes to you, flip on over to page 123 and post sentances 5-9.

The closest book to me at that the time was my art history text (Art, A Brief History 3rd addition, Marilyn Stokstand), wich had this to say:

The Pergamon frieze is carved in high relief with deep undercutting that creates dramatic contrasts of light and shade that play over complex forms. Compositionally, the Pergamene sculptors sought to balance opposing forces in three dimentional space along diagonal lines, whereas Greek artists of the fifth century BCE sought equilibrium and control through balanced horizontals and virticals. Some figures in the Pergamon frieze even extend beyond the architectural setting onto the steps, where visitors had to pass them on their way up to the shrine (see sculptural figures at far left, fig. 5-9).

And then I decided that text books shouldn’t count as that was posably the most boring thing anyone has ever written, ever.

so instead I grabbed the closest non-text book, which was Go Diego Go, Rescue Truck Saves The Day, which obviously doesn’t have 123 pages, so the next closest one was Self by Yann Martel:

This preluded by PMS so bad they circled at least one day a month when they would “disconnect from reality”. This is an arduous feminine normality. It would push anyone to worship the goddess Anaprox. But even in these cases, I feel that the burden remains a meaningful burden.

    Ok here’s mine: from <>The Brain that Changes Itself<> by Norman Doidge:<>This is what I believe A. experienced. Each time he thought of sex, he thought of violence. Each time he though of violence, he thought of sex, reinforcing the connection in the merged map.Merzenich’s colleague Nancy Byl, who works in physical medicine, teaches people who can’t control their fingers to redifferentiate their finger maps. The trick is not to try to move the fingers separately, but to relearn how to use their hands the way they did as babies.<>The last book I read was more engrossing: it was <>Enduring Love<> by McKeown.:) Happy reading.

What is a Pocket Buddha?

The pocket Buddha is a talisman, whether the pocket is in our mind or our jeans, the pocket Buddha is there to add a touch of Zen to our lives. He smiles from his dark penny and used tissue filled abode and reminds us simultaneously to go with the flow of our lives and to keep our goals, hopes and dreams ahead of us. At least one moment everyday, the satisfaction of a project completed, the taste of a meal we managed to make without burning, the extraordinary patience we somehow managed to show in the most frustrating of times, the pocket Buddha throws us a pocket-lint sized piece of nirvana, and for that I am very grateful.
