I have “a feeling for liminal space. I love the way cats like to be half in half out, the wild and the tame, and I too am the wild and the tame…To cross the threshold is to enter another world – whether the one on the inside or the one on the outside…The crossing in and out, the different worlds, the significant spaces, are private coordinates” – Jeanette Winterson, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal (60). Natural space is just that – natural – and correspondingly valuable. Beyond its life, its ecology, its living creatures, it’s also a liminal space; a place where we too can be wild and unconditioned.
