Theme Thursday -- Recreation
Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one Thursday to the next. Hosted by Reading Between Pages.
Anyone can participate in it.
The rules are simple:
•A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
•Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
•Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
•It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word) Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”
This week’s theme is – RECREATION (Any spot that you would go for a break – Parks, resorts, even a library)
I had some trouble with this one. I had to browse through a couple of books just to find something I thought might fit. And it is not a perfect fit but I’m going to post it anyway. The guy is in a park. Fenway in Boston to be exact.
Locusts still proclaimed the day to be as it really was; dozing leaves drooped like limp Dali watches; iridescent dragonflies hovered effortlessly in the torpid air; dust kicked up by the kids settled back slowly and directly to its origin.
