This week's theme is Emotion. Here's mine from the short story "The Lamp of God" in The New Adventures of Ellery Queen by Ellery Queen (p. 3):

It was Thorne on the wire. Ellery, who never thought of Thorne without perforce visualizing a human monolith--a long-limbed, gray-thatched male figure with marbled cheeks and agate eyes, the whole man coated with a veneer of ebony, was rather startled. Thorne was excited; every crack and blur in his voice spoke eloquently of emotion. It was the first time, to Ellery's recollection, that Thorne had betrayed the least evidence of human feeling.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. And am sure you will double your readiing while recuperating.

Hope all goes well with your surgery! I've been wanting to read some Ellery Queen and this sounds fun. That was a great choice for this week.
