Hi everyone,

I am trying to get the body of a heading up to the next subheading. For
example with this org file,

* quiz one

This is the description.
Use emacs for this.

** question 1
what is 40 + 2

If the point is in the first heading, I want to run a function that would
return the string "This is the description.\nUse emacs for this."

I thought there was a simple way to do that, but so far it has eluded my
google fu. Any hints?
