LIMNAL VS. LIMINAL: “I” MAKE A DIFFERENCE

But then, there’s:


LIMINAL
adjective: lim·i·nal

Definition of liminal
1: of or relating to a sensory threshold
2: barely perceptible
3: of, relating to, or being an intermediate state, phase, or condition : in-between, transitional <in the liminal state between life and death — Deborah Jowitt>


Given a choice? I’ll go with the lakes. I like lakes. I’m not sure about the other thing.

    1. Webster Lake — the first one — is a pretty big lake. It’s got a beach, places to picnic and it’s big enough for boats and swimmers and all of that. the other is a big pond along the Blackstone river. It’s pretty big, but very shallow most places. Less than two feet deep and muddy bottom, so it is where many of the birds — the swans, some of the geese, and lots of ducks live and make nests. We have a lot of water around here 🙂

    1. True. What’s not to like? This year, there’s water in the ponds, rivers, and lakes. We are finally not in a state of drought. We’ve been running short of water every year for almost a decade, so it’s nice to see the waterways full this fall. First time in many years.

  1. I was waiting for your version of liminal while so many bloggers admitted that they had to look up for it including me and you came up with these wonderful captures of lake. I will also give you company.

    1. It still isn’t real “winter” here yet. It gets pretty cold at night, but it’s in the forties during the day and will be in the fifties probably tomorrow and the next day. The longer the deep cold holds off, the happier I will be.

        1. You’re no doubt correct. It’s probably a word generating app, but I have to ask myself … seriously … don’t they know enough words without a computer to pick them? It’s just one word a day. 365 words — single words — in an entire YEAR. Surely anyone has that many words in their vocabulary.
