My Favorite Metaphor for the Day

is this one: your vision a dim flashlight that you have to shake all the way to the outhouse

That’s all I have to say, really. It’s from an Ani DiFranco piece called “Parameters.” The whole piece is beautiful and chilling and definitely worth a listen, but the image of that dim flashlight is sticking with me. You can listen to whole thing here (she chats a bit at the beginning and the crowd’s kind of rowdy, but they settle down):

Art as healing. Metaphors that work. Simply, yes.
