I remember the nights I spent curled, alone, and warm, the morning I woke in the dark to a lightning storm and I thought the world was ending. I can’t remember what I felt then, truly, alone, watching the sky split again and again open, from the window of my bedroom, and then the window of my kitchen, where I stood, barefoot, and cool: exhilarated, terried: this is the end of the world, this odd, underwater light, this purple sky.
— Shruti Swamy, NOTES ON CREATION
