The Friday 56

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.

I'm just starting to read The Garden of Small Beginnings.

The young guy told us his name was Mike, and he was here because he'd been at the botanical gardens the week before and saw a poster for the clas and signed up on a whim. "I like to do all kinds of things," he said, shifting from foot to foot. "I skateboard, snowboard, mountain bike, surf, run, play in a band, but I was standing under a tree last week, just being in nature, you know, which I dig a lot, and realized I don't do anything slow and mellow. Then I turned around to leave and there was the poster for this class right there in my face. It was like a sign from the universe, you know what I mean? So I went with it, and here I am."
