WAR

............................................................

Men and war. Conquests. Defending and attacking. Protecting. Hunting. Planning a strategy. Holding at bay. Entering the fray. Arms. Fighting side by side. Embattlements. The three Musketeer - Peter. Gilgamesh. Territory. Posturing. Alpha males. Adrenalin. Disageement. Criticism. Winning.

The fighter.

NATURE

............................................................

Growing. Expanding and contracting. Planting. Watering. Roots and leaves. Anchoring the soil. Cactii. Wittling. Wilt and mildew. Surface crawler and middle flyer. Structures. Ecology. Weaving. A tree. Tendrils entwined through the branches. Soil moist and fertile. Deserts. An oceanianic view of change. Weathered rocks hod out chemically roughened edges to the wind.

The traveller.

These clumsy and most important patterns colour our feelings about what to expect.

Shouldn't we take care to choose which we use predominantly?

mine and theirs: burning old growth forests
mine: my own metaphysics
cliches
mine and theirs: wrestling and intertwining metaphors
wars ending with war metaphorical florish sad
