Friday 56

The Friday 56 is a bookish meme sponsored by Freda's Voice. It's really easy to participate.

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it up at Freda's site.

Here's mine from Time to Be in Earnest: a fragment of autobiography by P. D. James:

Apart from the fun of occasionally finding a treasure or a domestic object needed but no longer made, there is something poignant and nostalgic about the accumulated leavings of dead lives: the old wedding photagraphs and remnants of tea-services, the sentimental Victorian prints, the formal photographs from the 1920s of earnest children posed against obviously spurious backgrounds and gazing into the lens with concentrated innocence.

Intriguing expression: accumulated leavings.

Sounds like something to explore. Thanks for visiting my blog.
