In this week’s “Spreading the Word”, I share with you an article and a podcast recording. The topic: metaphors in our languages. For the most part, we don`t even notice them. Yet, we cannot really do without them. It may even be that metaphors reflect the way we think, not just the way we express our thoughts. And they may help us think deeply (by the way, that`s another metaphor).

Keeping up the “Spreading the Word” tradition, every Thursday I hope to share with you an article I’ve read or a video I’ve seen and considered it to be inspiring or enlightening. I feel it is important to take good care not just of our physical but also of our mental well-being. Humans have always turned and returned to storytelling. My Thursdays’ “Spreading the Word” articles are an online version of sharing worthwhile stories.
keep exploring and storytelling!
