The closest book game December 21, 2006

By monitoring incoming links today, I found 10 from http://backreaction.blogspot.com/ , and had a look. She had indeed linked me, and I found out it was an invitation to act on a game posted by clifford first.

So the game is, take the closest book to you right now, go to the fifth sentence on page 123, write the following three sentences in the blog, and tag three people.

The closest book to me in English (also visible from the picture in the previous post, if you have good eyes) is “Late Roman Painting” by my father, the late Wladimiro Dorigo. I’m quite happy to post three sentences from my father here.

“In the crypt of the Five Saints, in the Cemetery of Callistus, the only portrait of a praying figure which remains almost intact (though damaged) for inspection is that of ‘Dionysas’, so called from the inscription Dionysas in pace. It may well be affirmed, with De Walt, that every specific trace of impressionism has disappeared from this countenance. Its facial planes are so separated from the physiognomical lines of eyes, nose or mouth as to amount to a formal dissociation which is wholly expressionist.”

Wow that was long! Three sentences in pure Dorigo style. Now who should I tag ? Let’s see.

Ok, let’s take Gordon ( http://gordonwatts.wordpress.com ), Zerocold ( http://zerocold.wordpress.com ), and gattostanco ( http://gattostanco.diludovico.it/) .

This was fun!
