     "Anxious quiver of being" is Ezra Bayda's description of how he experiences an aspect of life.

     In the dark time of the year. 
     Between melting and freezing
     The soul's sap quivers.                             T.S. Eliot - Little Gidding (No. 4 of 'Four Quartets')

      “Richard Rohr suggests that the only way out of a person's entrapment in 'normalcy, the way things are,' is to be drawn into sacred space, often called liminality, where he believes all genuine transformation occurs. Liminality, from the Latin word for threshold, is the state of being betwixt and between where the old world has been left behind but we have not yet arrived at what is to come.”
