Sometimes I develop visual metaphors simply because I want to draw those images. Like this camel face. Once I learn it, I can use a camel to stand for many things . . . going long distances. . . carrying burdens. . . trekking through unknown territories, etc.
- Camels have a fat triangle nose
- and floppy cheeks/lips
- and a rounded head
- with eyes on the side (because they are prey) and eyelashes that go every which way to keep out the sand
- and rounded ears, that should have fuzz on them
- and buck teeth just for fun.
