Weekly Scribblings #67: Liminal Space (posted by Rommy)
"Dive into the idea of 'liminal space'".
"Those are times and places where things are not strictly one thing or another. Merriam-Webster defines it as 1: of, relating to, or situated at a sensory threshold : barely perceptible or capable of eliciting a response 2: of, relating to, or being an intermediate state, phase, or condition : in-between, transitional."
Her little girl is ready for college–
only a summer at home intervenes.
No worries, she says, I am not nervous,
impervious to her mother's fears.
In mid-Summer, she slowly begins
packing. She gazes at her stuffed
animals, sadly watching her
furry friends she held–now worn.
She is torn about what to take,
and what to leave behind. She is
going to start a brand new life,
and tries to clear her mind.
