j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

Teaser Tuesdays (6)

Introduced to me by: Bookworm Barista
Hosted by: Should Be Reading

My teaser on Tuesday:

"Mrs. Moore, your delightful doctor has decided on a picnic, instead of a party in his house; we are to meet him out there-you, myself, Mr. Fielding, Professor Godbole-exactly the same party."
"Out where?" asked Ronny.
"The Marabar Caves."
"Well, I'm blessed," he murmured after a pause. "Did he descend to any details?"
~pg. 81, A Passage to India by E.M. Forster


*My note:
I feel that E.M Forster's writing is very thought-provoking. I have to re-read passages at times and think of the details carefully. They are deep-rooted in meaning. Plus, I'm enjoying the culture that he's portraying here. So interesting.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! And I love your teaser -- especially that last line. It made me laugh out loud, it was so dry.

Oh, by the way, that comment was from me, at Bookishgal. Your comment only allows me to log in with my I.D. from a different blog, but this was me. :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I'm glad I made you LOL! :D
I'll see if I can figure out how to change the comment problem/thing.

You're right. It does seem quite a bit thought provoking. I think I am a little lost and would have to read the book in it's entirety to understand! Very interesting teaser!

Great tease! I'd like to re-read Forester sometime soon.

Okay, I'm a day late, but here it is:

"Thinking of such things, turning over in his own mind together small desires and grave duties, but never hesitating for a moment as to the necesity of leaving the hospital, Mr. Harding walked up and down the abbey, or sat still meditating on the same stone step, hour after hour."

-- Anthony Trollope, The Warden (Chapter 16, A Long Day in London)

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
