A book tag

I'd been tagged by La Delirante a while back. Sorry I took so long to do it :(
This is what the tag is:

1. Pick up the nearest book.

2. Open to page 123

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the next three sentences.

5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

' But it was weirder that science fiction, it was hallucinatory. By the time we reached the terminal stop, I was ready to float off the train and drift across to my parents' house in a fit of transrational magic. It was extremely annoying to find that actually I had to use my feet to get down from the train. peyote and a teacher were both necessary to enter the world described the author. I had felt vaguely cheated.'
This is from 'Getting There' By Manjula Padmanabhan
I don't much like tagging anyone. But maybe Hiphop Grandmom and Ageless Bonding and Onedia might like to do this?

I'm glad you're back. I've been out of town and busy, too, so haven't been posting quite so much. Just wanted to say that I LOVE the new photo at the top of your blog. That is breathtaking.

Be well. :)

I miss you. I know you're back, but I want you REALLY back. How else am I to feel like I've traveled? Your blog transports me.

Thanks all. The photo isn't by me. A daughter took it. She is a good photographer.
