17-Across: Relating to a threshold (7). The word is liminal, and it’s a word that my professors have been throwing around a lot lately as they point out the critical threshold moments in the texts we’re reading. And I cringe every time they use it, because I believe that every moment of our existence is liminal. All of our actions have consequences and all of our non actions have consequences as well. We have so much control over our lives and yet we have so little. All we can do is steer toward the good and hope for the best.
