standing here again at a threshold between vitality and danger. teetering as has become habit.

The threshold is a place of transition; as such, it is a place of enormous vitality and activity as well as danger…poets are drawn to and write from their thresholds, either inner or outer. In order to write well, a poet needs to go to that place where energy and intensity concentrate, that place just beyond which chaos and randomness reign. 

-- Poetry As Survival, Greg Orr
