I remember from my father's funeral that the minister kept using a metaphor about life of a prism. And I took that away like a cherished image.
Maybe we can use a metaphor for it, out of dance. I think for many years I was aware of the need, in dance and in life, to breathe deeply and to take in more air than we usually take in.
Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what they have been through.
Metaphors have a way of holding the most truth in the least space.
Orson Scott Card
Using adverbs is a mortal sin.
