liminality

my roommate's teacher randomly sends out emails of interesting words. tonight the word was liminality, which wikipedia defines as:

is a psychological, neurological, or metaphysical subjective, conscious state of being on the "threshold" of or between two different existential planes. the liminal state is characterized by ambiguity, openness, and indeterminacy. one's sense of identity dissolves to some extent, bringing about disorientation. liminality is a period of transition where normal limits to thought, self-understanding, and behavior are relaxed - a situation which can lead to new perspectives.

yep, that sounds about right. im standing in the paradoxical threshold. it's horrifying & exhilirating at the same time. my foot is ready to move from one side but not too sure about what lies ahead.


i am sure about one thing though: diamondbacks has a new happy hour special and it is wonderful! we practically took up the whole balcony tonight with friends enjoying martinis & mojitos... and sliders which i of course love because they look like tiny burgers!
