What does metaphor do for you? Metaphor gives me energy. It lights up everything it touches through big ways (like the name of my blog: Sunshine in a Jar) or smaller ways. When I am out walking and notice how the sunlight shines on the water and compare it to how I feel in that moment it is metaphor. Our brains are wired to respond to these comparisons. As we’ve explored each of the spirals, we’ve engaged in a study of metaphor. We’ve compared our learning to a spiral and our creativity too.
We are getting close to the end of this series. To review I thought it would be interesting to look at metaphor in a new way, to invite you to write your own metaphor that will serve as a touchstone for the work you've done through the eight spirals.
