I love analogies, and my books are full of them. I use them to embue my books with age old wisdom. I also love extended metaphors and that’s the point at which a book becomes magical realism. This short video, staring my daughter and her boyfriend, is a visual metaphor that I use in my book You Can’t Shatter Me. I use a lot of metaphors in that story.

Hey Tahlia, This is a great, and inspirational, video. I am going to keep it and watch it daily! I need to remind myself of this!

I’m glad you found it helpful. It’s good to contemplate the difference between stirring it and dealing with it too. dealing with it is working through the issues, stirring it is going over the same ground over and over again, stirring up the same emotions.
