Everything is there for a purpose and a reason, and if I’ve done my job well, the meaning of everything will be veiled, but there should be one possible conclusion or solution that would make it all balance out. I’m certainly not throwing up random things and expecting an audience to decide what it means. But at the same time, if you’re telling a story, at all metaphorical, then you’re purposefully being a bit veiled, a bit obtuse, a bit puzzling. If it wasn’t, then it would just be a story, a straight thesis of “here’s what I think of the world and how it works and what I’m interested in.” That would be dry and boring and no one should have to listen to that.
