this liminal space,a slice between where we were  and where we are going;
this liminal opportunity,a breath between who we were  and who we will become –
thin as a blade,       it offers itself to us,never shying away from any choice    that has brought us here.
Boldly, it opens intothis moment, this place, this breath.

our possibilities wrapped about us,
the hems of our dancing skirtsswirling in the chaos of what might be.

May                  we             absorbthe density of space                  in              which                  we ...
May we breathe our way       into the fullness          of our being.
We are dancers on the very edges of             things.
