Something Gone, Something Not Yet

Wandering between two worlds, one dead,
The other powerless to be born…
-Matthew Arnold, 1885
As individuals, we often find ourselves in in-between times, somewhere between a world we knew, and a world that has not yet emerged. These times are hours of crisis, disorientation, loss, and enormous anxiety. Similarly cultures, eras, civilizations go through in-between times. Ours is such a moment in history. How can we recover our bearings, sustain dignity and integrity when things fall apart? What abides amid such discontinuity? Together we will reflect on what we may do to recover a sense of personal autonomy when our roadmap whirls from our grasp and leaves us confounded.
