Issue 22: Up in the Air

Loading...

Periods of ambiguity are intriguing (if a bit uncomfortable) because they are ripe with possibility. When we are “up in the air,” we are given the chance to grapple with the unknown, to encounter our finiteness. And when that happens, when it’s clear that things are no longer in our control, we come to the end of ourselves.

 In this issue, our contributors found themselves “up in the air” for a myriad of reasons: an unexpected illness, a new vocation, the glimpse of a blue heron flying low at dusk. And in which pause, each momentary suspension, they point us to find the gifts of the in-between.
