Word Prompt

Liminal

Challenge

A huge thank you to Sammi for hosting this special challenge. I am always pushed to find some way to bring her chosen word to life. Not always an easy task!

 

Everywhere and Nowhere

She was quite convinced

It was impossible to arrive

At that delicious point

Between sleep

and wake

Intentionally

Surely it was a gift from the Universe

To find oneself at that liminal point

Aware of our surroundings

Yet feeling the dream slowly

Take hold so that we find ourselves

Not here, nor there

But everywhere and nowhere

  1. Q,

    My knowledge of liminal was quite minimal until you mentioned it the other day. So of course, when you were deliberating on how to use this word, all I was thinking was . . . Juan Soto swing . . she’s gonna bring it. So of course I was right about that, because you stepped up and out and over and through with this ditty.

    On a personal note, I wore my Fitbit to bed the other night. I did achieve an 81 sleep score, which is good. But still, the number of times I was awake was concerning to me. I achieved the nowhere and everywhere a scant few times, but not nearly enough. Liminal . . .

    Love this swing ‘o yours!

    • B,

      My knowledge was quite minimal myself – thank God for the Google! I’m ever so glad you thought I swung à la Soto!.

      81 sleep score is fantabulous! (Compared to me, that is) But it can be quite disconcerting to see just how often we toss and turn. I actually, get this, FORGOT to put on my FitBit yesterday. I feel ya on the not near enough. I actually got, in toto, between being disturbed thrice, almost 9 hours of sleep last night. I am so tired today as a result! Methinks me needs to find that liminal space more often…

      So glad you do…

      • Thank God for the Google indeed! It is always there, it never judges, and it produces these epic Soto-like swings on occasion as well. Win? Meet win and her twin sister win!

        It sounds better than I felt, so I am dubious as to this Fitbit’s ability to really understand my sleep, yanno?

        The waking up is true, because I know when I’m skimming the surface and when I am up. Happens several times a night, so that’s true. But the idea that I got a “B? For my sleep? Methinks teacher was grading on a mean curve.

        The liminal space sounds delicious alright.

        Mmm Hmm. 🙂
