What does that even mean? That recovery has cars driving on it? That it’s hard, ie. cement-like, and either narrow or wide? That it is split in half with opposing traffic? That recovery takes a long time to lay down?
I think the English language needs some new metaphors. The problem with that is that they’re not that easy to come up with.
But I think I’ll try to do that from now on.
I really will.
Including my first: “a path of flaming rocks, monsters and strange growths on your feet” to recovery.
Road just doesn’t include the real-life stuff involved with changing your situation from bad to better.
