A Moment of Self Indulgence...Please Forgive Me ;)

I'm in the process of writing a new short story (entitled 'Memories Along a Fault Line') and I am re-reading what I have thus far before I continue on with the tale. Anyways, as I was just reading it, I was impressed with a particular passage, so much so that I thought I would indulge in uncharacteristic showmanship and post it here, becase, damn it, I may not be great but I have moments of well, something approaching greatness (or perhaps I am deluded) and this passage exemplifies this:

Pulled away from her thoughts, and brought back to the reality of the moment, his voice suddenly swelled and filled her realm of comprehension like sound returning to the world when resurfacing after an underwater dive. Momentary confusion cannibalized by sudden clarity and a return to normal comprehension.

I like that passage, especially the phrase "momentary confusion cannibalized by sudden clarity."

I'm going to forsake my usual (not phony, either) modesty and allow myself some hubris: FUCK that's a good phrase!

Mometary confusion cannibalized by sudden clarity.

Damn, that's good shit.

...I think :)
