metaphors for life

i like trying to come up with metaphors for my life. one that has bounced to mind recently has been that feeling that you have when you’re expecting a phone call, it is already past the time you expected it, and you’re afraid that your phone might not be working and are afraid to check it because you fear that it will be at the instant that you have the phone off the hook that the call will be made.

but although i really like the metaphor, since it certainly captures a specific feeling for me, it just doesn’t quite fit.

another would be the feeling when two people are alternately choosing people to make up their teams, and you know you’re going to get picked last.

i like that one for the same sorts of reasons, but it also just doesn’t quite fit.

the search continues.


if a play can be considered a metaphor, maybe all wear bowlers which is over in Culver City at the Kirk Douglas Theater right now, is good for life

life is like a novel...our destiny is written out and each event is yet another unfolding mysterious surprise. What we believe will ultimately be the ending. So learn from mistakes, feel the pain, rejoice in the laughters, induldge in the love. You only get one shot at this book. No two books are identical.
