a: mental health ~
b: pulling weeds

What:

" Most people are fairly adept at identifying their issues, and you may have the self-awareness to acknowledge the potential causes of your problems, but most of us don't dig deep enough. We spend so much time and energy mowing the stuff we can see that we miss the root, and, without addressing the root, the problem will come back - it might even spread!"

a: mental health ~
b: hiking trail

What:

"Mental health is not so neatly defined. Instead of a permanent state we reach after a hard slog, mental health is like one of the many trails I hiked this summer. If I stay on the trail, I don't get lost. If I veer off the trail a bit and hop back on, I rarely have a problem"

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.
