Decisions! Decisions! Decisions! I think I’ve blogged or ranted before about how I feel about decisions. All that aside, I have made a decision on my favorite blog post of the past week.
My favorite blog entry is "Ever Met A Phor ?" by Wordsmitty . The title, Ever Met a Phor?, caught my attention and aroused my curiosity. Even though, I had a good idea that the subject was metaphors, I had to read the blog entry to make sure and learn the author’s opinion of the subject.
There was one paragraph in this entry that I can’t stop thinking about. This paragraph spoke to me and to my muse.
A metaphor sings sweetly, and excess becomes a choir. They are beacons of light to common speech. Stories dance off the page in a rainbow of colors rather than let text pantomime a tale.
In fact, the paragraph was so encouraging that I attempted to use metaphors when I wrote today’s entry in my offline blog.
Another thing I liked about Wordsmitty’s entry was the quotes. I like quotes because they give insight into another person’s mind, they are nice to use in meditation, and they provoke thought.
