In case you couldn’t tell, I’m in such a rage at the moment it makes writing/blogging kinda hard. I was stuck with what to talk about in a world where an aging despot is trying to hold onto the faded glory days of empire and his relevance by pummeling the hell out of a much smaller country while the world sits on its hands, a pandemic is still ravaging populations and humans, by and large, just don’t seem to get it and a bunch of people who have a uterus suddenly got the shaft.
But then I realised what a great word rage is. Four letters and yet it’s so meaty. It sounds pissed off and angry. Even its derivatives – enraged and outrageous, are great sounding words. Fury is another good one. The ability to emphasise the u really gives it substance. Grim is also utterly descriptive.
So today, I’m finding resonance in the murky words of despair. I will go back to thinking about rainbows and unicorns but today is not that day….
Anyone else want to wallow with me in the terrible anguish of dark words? Do you have a fave?
