Some time ago, writer and blogger Luanne introduced me to the idea of liminality, particularly liminal spaces. This captured my attention because as an introvert and a Highly Sensitive Person I feel liminal spaces are important. I like the quiet of a vestibule before the roar of a crowd. I like to stop a moment and breathe or at least slow my pace.
I took this door picture on account of the mirrored doors. One shot, multiple doors and reflections of even more doors.
This photo is metaphorical for me. I was in a liminal space, literally, but figuratively, in my head as well. I was trying to make a choice in those few quiet moments. As choices go, I had so many things to consider. I found it funny to be in the center of ten doors, the mirrored ones asking me, “What do YOU want, Joey?”
Moments later, in my car, yet another liminal space, I’d talk to my husband and he would ask me, “What do YOU want, Joey?”
I made the photo black and white, because while some aspects are, a lot of the pros and cons are unknown. I think of them as gray areas which can be colored in as I go.
I made the choice and crossed the threshold, and I am once again grateful for liminal space.
