About Me
My favorite word: Liminality
Adjective: liminal li-mu-n(u)l
1. At a threshold or transitional stage
2. Of a stimulus just strong enough to be consciously experienced
From Wikipedia:
Liminality (from the Latin word līmen, meaning "a threshold") 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.
A good place to be.
