"Arthritis is like sitting on a thin fence. How well you cope with the pain depends on how you can balance on the fence"
"Arthritis is like having broken glass in your joints,"
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
