Writer’s note: tag cloud as metaphor
Relationship Descriptor: His internal dialogue (and monologue) and hers are imagined as tag clouds, with individual words and phrases sized according the frequency that they appear in each (if not both) of their personal narratives of Life, the Universe and Everything. The largest words are those interests or concerns that are most often and importantly at focus behind the veil, if not in the conversations or attempts at consensus between these two characters.
What would it mean if the most prominent and therefore the largest words of his Tagcloud of Consciousness and Personhood are very very tiny on hers. Or missing entirely? This is really about “sets” of interest and importance. What if there is almost NO overlap between these importance-circles?
See dashed-line tagcloud as thought balloons, his and hers.
