Shattered is such a colorfully descriptive word which can represent an act or a condition. The act of something shattering entails a number of scenarios. Can you imagine the shards of glass, petals, and pooled water lying amidst cut feet.
Shattered as a condition can evoke such emotion. Shattered dreams of the future that was almost close enough to grasp. Crushed and broken spirits, totally disabled by life’s twists and turns.
This smashing word, shattered, is rich with depth and imagery. And I think we all need to give thanks to Mr. Elmer Glue, Mrs. All Things That Repair, and The Infamous Therapists, that all in some way help our shattered acts and conditions.
