By way of an explanation, we will be celebrating Terminalia with Thread and Word in Seasalter through a walk with poetry readings ( you are welcome to bring a contribution) and the meditative knotting of ropes. I will supply the ropes.
Our intention is to explore the liminal space that surrounds us .In Seasalter.there is a proposal to cover the area we will be walking with 1.000’s of solar panels as tall as double decker buses .
The word liminal comes from the Latin word limen, meaning threshold – any point or place of entering or beginning. A liminal space is the time between the ‘what was’ and the ‘next.’ It is a place of transition, waiting, and not knowing.
It is suggested that we should get there as often as we can and stay there as long as we can ….
Liminal space is where all transformation takes place, if we learn to wait and let it form us.
The act of walking and knotting ropes will allow us to think about where we are now and how our world might be transformed .
We will document this experience on a Vara ( see photo below of nine Varas from previous walks wit Thread and Word )
The weave for our Terminalia Vara is in the photos alongside. We will be attaching our ropes to the Vara at the end of the walk ( in the pub 😊) .
Looking forward to walking and sharing this ex[erience with some of you on February 23rd.
