"Winter Sky is like sitting next to Coleman as he ruminates ruefully over little things and large, making you long to take a walk in the woods with him as he says, 'See that? Right there.' And you do."
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.
