Definition
firmly within — such as:
  • firmly stuck into — as a thorn into a finger
  • enclosed within — as a fossil within a rock
  • implanted as a part — sometimes specifically of a reporter living with a military unit
  • He watched the landscape for glimpses of the green that he knew was embedded in the shrubbery; when it came flickering into his consciousness, he focused upon it, keeping it there, darkening it, holding it in his vision as long as possible until his head hurt and he let it fade away.
