Liminal Space


I’m in a liminal space today. It sounds romantic, but this version isn’t. 


In case you don’t know, liminality is defined as: “of, relating to, or being an intermediate state, phase, or condition.” In a practical sense, it means we are ending our current sit and heading off to the next one. That’s always a liminal space, and it can be an interesting one! Things often become unsteady and surprising in the liminal space as the boundaries fluctuate. 


With our current transition, it turns out that our next sitting engagement has evaporated. The family had a vacation planned in Cornwall. But unfortunately their daughter broke her leg and is going to have surgery on Monday, so their vacation is canceled. Yikes! 


They have thoughtfully provided for us, however. Apparently the homeowner’s father is in the process of selling a house in the area, and we have been invited to stay there for a week so we won’t be left out in the cold. Instead, we’ll be in lovely accommodations with no pets to look after, so it will be like having a week’s vacation at a free AirBnB!
