As a writer and a speaker, I am keen on the use of analogies to aid in comprehension. Of course, the use of analogies does not confer much in the way of a complete understanding of a topic or issue, but it does suit my needs in most of my discussions. I find that they are a short-handed way of explaining something overly technical or overly complex. Analogies help, but perhaps I overuse them.
That being said, I will likely be using plenty of them in this upcoming article whereupon I ask whether and to what degree self-change affects one's relationships with others.
It's still the New Year, time to track my changes and my perceptions of others' perceptions.
