I discover from the skin inside that honoring is also letting go of the exoskeletons of those who came before me.
Discover is a direct transitive verb and pronominal, says the Grammar woman. And even though I don't know what that means without commas anymore, it's nice to discover myself transitive, direct, pronominal and with commas.
