"One day you walk into your fixer upper, and it hits you that things are looking fairly lovely. The new floors bring a lightness to the environment, the fresh paint is like a breath of glorious mountain air."
"Whether you are getting ready to sell your home, or just want to enjoy it looking it's best, fresh paint is like a face-lift for your house. Eye-catching accents and inviting crisp surfaces bring new appeal to tired looks."
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.
