The nature of theme

Theme doesn’t show up on your porch and knock. It appears over time as a pattern of clues emerge. That’s because the human brain thinks in metaphor, in dreams.

Theme is the same fleeting figure in waking life. You can’t try to dream on a theme, but it will be there if it has to. It will start following you until you give it a home.
