A Book
February 11, 2008

Okay, so no one tagged me with this meme, but I saw it on Jod{i}'s blog and stole it. Now, she knows I hate being tagged for memes so she's prolly kicking herself for not tagging me with it and busting my chops over it. To which I say, Nyah!

Rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open it at page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence/ phrase.
4. Blog the next four sentences/ phrases together with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig your shelves for that very special or intellectual book.

Heh. I've been on a drawing and internet spree for the last year and haven't had my usual tower of pisa stack of books by my chair, but I'm kinda juggling a million things at the moment, and happen to have:
In the Beginning: The Navajo Genesis by Jerrold E. Levy right here at hand.

page 123, fifth sentence through the ninth.

It is also a means by which the creative or good side of chaos is retained as part of Blessingway.
When corn was created, Talking God was told to sanctify it but failed. Coyote, in company with Begochidi, was then asked to perform the sanctification:
"Go ahead, old man, you must be of use here," [Coyote] was told.

I'm really, really hoping I get to go to New Mexico in June to work on the Navajo rez for a week. If I could just land a damn job!

That sounds interesting - I'd like to do that too! I used to be obsessed with Navajo and Cherokee cultures [in my blood after all].

Every time I get picked for this meme the closest book to me is The Soapmaker's Companion and the answer is a dry discourse on natural colorants. Yawn, so I'll spare you this time.
