Teaser Tuesday - 3rd July

Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your 'teaser' from .. that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!

At some future point in time, tar balls from a warm-water spill -- if not from the Gulf of Mexico then from some other blow-out -- will show up in Alaska waters to mingle with the crud left from the Exxon Valdez
a mediation on the damage we are doing to our world also - as last week - from Maggie Ross's Writing the Icon of the Heart. She has spent much time over the years in the wilderness and silence of Alaska.
(blogger tells me this is my 2000th post on this weblog not as much appearing here as in the past)
