once having explored the sense of life of first impressions, a themescape work will have the theme/title to consider - a metaphoric relationship either between the elements within the work, or one dealing extraniously to the world outside the work... in so doing, there is an enrichment of understanding about some aspect of the world around - the greater the universality, the greater the work... initially, of course, it is to be expected that a lot of cliche metaphoring will be used... this is NOT anything to be concerned with, as the practice of thinking in terms of metaphoric relationships needs the mundane to help set a pattern of thought... not only that, there can sometimes be cliches given new life and new twists of insight that can be expanded into a truly original and worthwhile work... the exercises would be like a sort of draino, flushing out the stale and ordinary and common, and allowing fresh ones to take place...
