I haven’t written in a while, and thought that looking at the daily post suggestion would be helpful. When I saw that the word was detonate, I thought, “there’s nothing going on in my life right now that would allow me to accurately use that word.” I started to consider using a word from a previous … More Amid the Rubble, There is (or will be) Beauty.
