So you want to know a little about my life perpetually on the threshold of I don’t know what?
The title here, liminal, refers to being on a threshold, in between, neither here nor there and both here and there. This is me in more ways that one.
I’m a writer. I write about anything and everything. I live with my two children and five cats. One of them is very intently purring at me while I type this. She’s 11 and has been the most loyal and compassionate friend I’ve known. But she does like to eat hummingbirds even though she knows I prefer to watch them alive. I keep a little oasis in the desert of the great southwest.
I’ve gone back to college for the third time. This time I am working on a BA in Religious Studies with a minor in American Studies. Previously I got a degree in Computer Aided Design and Mechanical Engineering Technology and substituted multivariable Calculus for an Algebra credit to graduate. Before that I officially studied English and Modern Languages but in reality I took a bunch of classes in sociology, mythology, history, literature, Spanish, German, French, and Latin. In other words I’m a nerd and professional student. I love my studies but they do distract me from posting quite as often as I would like.
You are free to peruse the archives although there are two distinct phases of my life chronicled here. The older first group is a glimpse into where I was.
I am now reinventing myself for about the 10,000th time in 31 years. It’s a journey and every step has the possibility of a new direction. I’ve taken many careless steps and a few that were over-thought until I stood paralyzed.
I have lived most of my life in two very different communities with very different world views. My own opinions result from having been exposed to a multitude of ideas and beliefs.
I welcome comments and thoughts so long as they are shared in a spirit of respect. I’m a big fan of love and compassion in all the forms they take.
I hope you enjoy your time here.
