작가에 관한 메타포

뉴욕타임즈의 한 기사에서 작가에 대한 흥미로운 메타포를 발견했다.

A writer is like a tuning fork: We respond when we’re struck by something. The thing is to pay attention, to be ready for radical empathy. If we empty ourselves of ourselves we’ll be able to vibrate in synchrony with something deep and powerful. If we’re lucky we’ll transmit a strong pure note, one that isn’t ours, but which passes through us. If we’re lucky, it will be a note that reverberates and expands, one that other people will hear and understand.

나는 작가를 무엇에 비유할 수 있을까? 오래 전 교사를 셸파에 비유한 이후로 더 나은 메타포를 찾지는 못했다.
