Life is a metaphor
A day to day interaction between things, events, and people; all presented to you as a living lesson. Pay attention and you will see that you are surrounded by messages right there just waiting for you to listen to them.
Years ago, I was drawn to metaphors to help me guide a school staff through changing times. The symbolism worked as a way to visualize the journey and organize the path. Over the past years, I have been reflecting on my life and found writing as a way to pour thoughts out and then edit. Was this what I really wanted to say? At one point, I looked at the themes that I had used with my staff and felt that perhaps there was something there that could help me make sense, once again, of my changing times. And so, I begin again to organize my own path through the use of metaphors. Perhaps my journey will help others. It has definitely helped me.
