The Friday 56: 5-28-10

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of Storytime with Tonya and Friends.And
*Post a link along with your post back to Storytime with Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

And as you look longer, if you let yourself see, the subtleties will clamor to show themselves. Doubts, compromises, and disappointments little and big--those usually reside around the eyes, but there are no rules. The hopes usually lurk around the mouth, but so does bitterness and tenacity. (My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares, p56 uncorrected proof)

"Csikszentmihalyi has had some success inducing flow state behavior through gamelike situations. He says that flow state is most likely to occur when individuals are in situations in which their ability is about equal to the difficulity of their tasks. If the task is too difficult, individuals feel anxious. If the task is not difficult enough they get bored."
