The Post that Reads like a Book


pb

Literally, a post reads about as well as a Ken doll, and a book is as dumb as a post.

“Perhaps things are not things but words: metaphors, words for other things.” —Octavio Paz

But metaphor, the language of imagination, tells a different story.

“Imagination could hardly do without metaphor, for imagination is, literally, the moving around in one’s mind of images, and such images tend commonly to be metaphoric.” —Robert Nisbet

Take time: literally an illusion perceived via metaphors that bong like Big Ben, could be something that burbles.

“Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in.” —Henry David Thoreau

On the metaphoric voyage of life temporal metaphors poop parties, spoil sport and kill joy, as with Father Time’s scythe. Timeless metaphors save the day.

“Any real belief in death is just wishful thinking.” —Chuck Palahniuk

The post that reads like a book mixes timeless metaphors with imaginative images and insightful wit, to save the day in humor’s way. postbookTap the image to open it in your web browser’s, um, book reader.
