“Every day one grows a little, every day something is different so that in the heaping up of days suddenly a thing that was impossible becomes possible.” I just started reading The Power by Naomi Alderman. This line hit me like a warm balm that poured from the top of my head and settled comfortably into my stomach. I love when authors capture an instantly recognizable truth with just the right words.
