This conversation is about sustaining as much as it is about emerging. It reflects an ongoing internal conversation about declaring my place in the world and negotiating, how much space I have within to take this world in, to live in it, to dip and swim in the river of life. It invited several years of exploration of that place of the in-between, the “threshold point”. Between an inhale and an exhale, between two cycles of breath, between one thought and the one that follows it, in that place where one thing has ended and the next thing has yet to begin.
