Writing Retreats As Navigation Points....
a: Retreat ~
b: navigational points on a map
What: "Retreats are like navigational points on a map, or lighthouses. The writing exercises are an antidote to the fear that if I really sat down to write, there would be nothing there."

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.
