Most of us have found that metaphors help us make sense of our complicated world, pushing us to view life’s complexities through alternate lenses and images. Metaphors are the creative tools of writers, artists, and therapists. The renowned author and anthropologist Mary Catherine Bateson once said, “there are few things as toxic as a bad metaphor. You can’t think without metaphors.” Lindsay Aromin surely has made good use of metaphors in her life.
Lindsay Aromin is an English teacher at North Smithfield High School, where each year her ninth grade students write their own “This I Believe” essays. Aromin has been a member of the Pawtucket and Providence Figure Skating Club for over twenty years. She also coaches private and group skating lessons in Pawtucket.
