    My dear god..it all makes sense now!!

    In Bette Midler's "The Rose", the rose is not a rose at all, but a metaphor for the heart!! Good god it's all so clear. How could I have been so foolish? What lessons have gone unlearned? What values uninstilled?

    Are we still speaking in metaphors? I mean, this realization rivals the best trips I've ever had....my mind has become somehow reconfigured as a result of this realization.

    I came up with a decent analogy the other day....

    I commented on a warped, and slightly ajar picture as being "slightly Kubric"... I gained a few followers in the process...

    It's okay...there's a lot to digest. I had to listen to the song on repeat for four and a half hours before I even began to *suspect* what was unfolding. It took another five hours before I was certain.

    You're wrong. I think that Ms. Midler clearly meant the rose to be a slightly opaque Bronteian realization that Youth lies within The Heart. You couldn't have been more wrong had you come swashbuckling into The Crown Literary Consortium with two of your most favorite John Grisham paperback novels. I have pity for you, but for the most, I remain in sheer disgust of your ignorant and shameful ineptitude.

    So then the next logical questions is what the "Beaches" represent in "Beaches". 4 years of graduate study, and I'm still no closer to my goal of understanding this metaphor.
