This week's theme is Any Action.
Here's mine from Tom Fleck: A Novel of Cleveland & Flodden by Harry Nicholson (p. 61):

"We'll dig here. Let's work fast before we lose the light. We'll take care to do it the proper way. Stand up, son." He faced the east and called out in a chant. "All things that guard this spot, we beg you to let us enter. We are your kin and need to take from here only because we have hardship." He swung around to face south and chanted again; then to the west, and finally, to the north.
