Without taking a breath

I've mentioned a few times here that I love the swirl of words, the fine way that writers put ink to paper (or fingers to keyboard).

Today, I found a sentence from Nicholas Evans' The Horse Whisperer:

"It rained for eight days without taking a breath."
I realize that it's probably a mixed metaphor, but I like it.

  1. I can't help but agree. I find that few things are as profoundly thrilling as observing the remarkable marriage of words flowing from your own hand.
