Into the liminal (Hirshfield)

For most members of a community, the liminal is a point of transition, entered briefly, at a particular time, in passage toward something else; such persons are dipped into nonidentity and self-forgetfulness in order to change who they are. For some, though, the liminal becomes their only dwelling-place—becomes home. A writer must invent for himself how to live this way.

Jane Hirshfield, from Nine Gates: Entering the Mind of Poetry
