Instead they should be interpreted like poems, as divinely-inspired acts of imagination.

This one didn't really do it for me. If I could have given it 2.5 stars, I would have. I got a couple of nuggets.

And, well, the author is a journalist so, well, it is, for me anyway, a journalist's journal but not much more.
