This beautiful offering from Krista Tippett's On Being podcast spoke directly to my soul, and I hope it will do the same for you. Summer is a perfect time to pause and be aware of transitions and changes necessary to go forward after a season of rest and recreation. For some of us, those transitions are self imposed and for others they are imposed by institutions and authorities. Regardless, transitions are as common as a change of seasons, and we must all master the art of moving on.
Krista interviews cellist Yo Yo Ma here and we hear the riveting analogy of inhabiting transitions in the fluidity of music. Inhabiting transitions is the equivalent of being in liminal places, threshold places where we are neither in the past or in the future, but instead we are in the thin place on the precipice of something new. If this description sounds like something you are going through, join me here in the days to come as we navigate together life in the thin place of transition. "Together we can do what I cannot do alone."
