The Book Nearest You

An exercise via Paul Denton, who in turn got it from a whole chain of sources, which finally slammed into a dead end.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don’t search around and look for the “coolest” book you can find. Do what’s actually next to you.

My result:

“Parkinson’s disease has some interesting links with depression–not only do many of my Parkinson’s patients have depression, but nearly all of them look depressed, because of their mask-like faces and slow movements.”

from The Midnight Disease, by Alice W. Flaherty, 2004.
