A Kickass Exploration of Metaphor

Over at Gotham, James Geary has this great piece on metaphor, "Metaphor and Pleasure: Experience is a comb that nature give to bald men."  I love the exploration, the sussing out of the ligamen, the exploration of metaphor's history.  A must-read for writers.  I can't wait to read I is an Other, his new book.  (Because, you know, you and I are geeks about this kind of stuff.)

Catch his TED talk here.

Hi Tamara! Had to stop by and say hello. Reading the Annie Proulx memoir, Bird Cloud, and thinking of you. I do enjoy her writing and the book is good (of course). Wyoming is one of those states that just produces great writers! Have a lovely summer. (BTW, editor in SunnyRoomStudio this week -- you might enjoy his remarks!)
