The word metaphor gives me cause to smile when I hear or read it.  I love plays on words and it takes me back to my NLP training with Dr Richard Bolstad and his play on words … “What’s a meta for?” 

Auntie Google’s dictionary defines a metaphor as ‘a figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable’.  My question is, what happens when metaphors happen in real life?  Or does real life happen in metaphors?

Every morning for the last few weeks I’ve been watching the changes happening in our trees.  When the sunrise hits them just right, the leaves glow like precious jewels above the leaf litter on the ground.  Every morning for the last few weeks I’ve been saying to myself “I’d love to take some photos of those glorious leaves”, and every morning for the last few weeks, there’s been something more important to do than what my brain says is ‘mucking around taking photos’.
