Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in that line, what she mean to say by "\(\textbf{ This }\)" ? she means to say that her occupation is : "spreading wide her hands and gathering paradise" or "writing poetry, which implies whatever she is doing right now" which one ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hm... i want to say that its your first option.... but writing poetry can be her way of gathering paradise... i may just be overthinking this (: which one are you leaning towards?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i guess so. still i lean towards first option only but still i feel if she wants us to follow to next line to knw about her occupation, she could have simply said , for occupation  this  or for occupation  this : hmm

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1haha well in all honesty im pretty tired (x but if i think of anything else. Um but i do think that her using the metaphor of paradise is writing poetry.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i think i get your first reply nw. if "Paradise" is a metaphor for 'writing poetry', then This can standalone there aswell. 1) "This" can hint 'current work' shez doing, which is writing poetry. 2) paradise also refers to writing poetry itself. such a nice interpretation(yours) thank you :)) took me a while to grasp :( !!
