Proceed With Caution

Women, being tuned in to the more cautious (and more creative) right brain, are more reluctant to do something unless they're sure they're going to get it right.

Here's how one neuropsychiatrist put it: Think of a man as carrying a quiverfull of arrows. When he spies a target, he lets fly with the whole caboodle.


This is my contribution to the book meme, sent to me by my pal Anna.
The rules are as follows:
  1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages)
  2. Open the book to page 123
  3. Find the 5th sentence
  4. Post the next three sentences
  5. Tag 5 people
I'm tagging: Linda, my gardening pal, Hoss, blackbird, cce, and Jen.

If those three sentences have you a bit interested, here's the book:

Okay, I'll play. But I might have to make up some sentences, for everything I read is pretty dull.

Ha! I'm suddenly reminded of the last scene of "Hero", where a character encounters a bit of a quiverful...

Got it. I'll post it tonight or tomorrow. Should be easy -- there are plenty of books lying around.

I shall do this one on Friday (better not be reading my Anais Nin book then). I have to say that the cover of that book looks very appealing.

Oh books, I love books....which one to choose though. I'm just back from vaca so this is the perfect segue back to blogging. I'll get on it after filling the fridge and storing the luggage. Thanks for the tag.
