Back in school (and therapy) I learned that metaphors are much richer in information than just the word given. In a group, for instance, saying “I feel depressed” isn’t quite as vivid as saying “I feel like sand bags are tied to my feet.” But wait–using “like” makes it a similie, doesn’t it! Well, similies are okay too. Which is a back door way of telling you how I feel right now: “like” a honeycomb devoid of honey. I can see I’m going to have to go and make a collage to fill up my honeycomb.
