Here's my three sentences from Cormac McCarthy's The Road:
The water was so clear. He held it to the light. A single bit of sediment coiling in the jar on some slow hydraulic axis.
So I pick Breda, and LawDog, and John Shirley, and, uh, ClaireBell.
And, yeah, I know I owe some other memes that I've been tagged on. Pic is taken for yours, Breda.
