Floating in the ether is hard. The ether being an aspect of change, the space between what we have known and that which we will come to know. This place, uncomfortably devoid of the familiar, especially over prolonged exposure, leaves many disoriented and flailing as the moorings that have defined our experience, and therefore our understanding of our operating environment, are removed. We feel alarmed and at risk, set adrift by circumstance and unable to comprehend the current situation or how to prepare for a future that has not come into focus. We may be on a course to better things, but instinct instructs us to brace for impact.
