Jazz Is Like A Sand Painting
a: Jazz ~
b: a sand painting
What: "He gives jazz, especially free jazz, new layers, colors, and sonorities. If jazz is like a sand painting, he's the dark layer at the bottom. If jazz has colors, he's the indigo blue and burnished bronze. A tuba changes the physical experience of hearing jazz."

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.
