Teaser Tuesday

This weekly meme is hosted by Should Be Reading  

"Whatever it was, I was consumed by more than just his physical aspects - though they were certainly distracting The hair, the face, his closeness to me, his scent... I felt it all, and it made my blood burn."

Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy #6) by Richelle Mead
p 66

Oh, I've been seeing this one around...the idea of "blood burning" certainly says it all, doesn't it?

Here is my teaser from Nature's Secret Messages: Hidden in Plain Sight by Elaine Wilkes (Page 3):

"We lie in the lap of immense intelligence." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Stop. Look. Listen. My kindergarten teacher taught me that. I remember carefully lining up the tips of my patent-leather shoes exactly at the edge of the curb and stopping–then carefully looking to my right and left, quiet and aware, listening for any clues. Feeling that it was safe to proceed, I'd grasp my classmate's hand, jump off the curb, and happily venture into unknown territories on the other side of the street.

Now I barely glance from side to side as I hurry on my way.

What happened? Where did that wide-open feeling of awareness go? In the rush of adulthood, it seems to vanish, but what would happen if we simply stopped, looked and listened…even as busy adults?

As a learning addict, I've hunted for insights through countless books, seminars, experts, masters and more. Eventually, I realized that my kindergarten teacher had it right from the beginning, long before I started my quest. Who knew that she was so profound?
