I just learned a new word.

Liminality. describes it as coming from "the Latin word 'limen,' which means 'threshold.' It was used by Arnold Van Gennep (1908) in his treatise on rithes of passage to describe that place in between one social state and the next (for example, being single and being married)."

I was looking for something altogether different naturally. But it's an interesting article.
