Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

Quote of the Day

[Metaphor] is, as a common feature of linguistic practice, an incidental expediency, a homely administering of first-aid by mother-wit to jams or halts in expression suddenly confronting speakers, with no respectable linguistic solution immediately in sight. The figure jumps or circumvents the blockage; it is, essentially, a rough, not a delicate, procedure.
