Between the metaphor and its symbol, we carve a harbour for the patchwork of ideas and impressions that have been gleaned from reality. Metaphors cover us when itís cold, they light our way in the dark, through the lens of metaphor we see the world, painted and framed by our imaginations, and in which we shelter against raging chaos. Words and their sounds carry images to those who hear. We draw and our symbols seem more truthful, more redolent with meaning, than what we have represented. We turn away from reality, deaf and blind, as the world explodes around us.
