“Slippage” (or the points of disjunctions): interrupted continuity of land and time; the fragility of connection; mistakes and failures.

In whatever form “slippage” takes–physical, political, or cultural–we become sensors and experience the slippage as shifted sense of equilibrium.

In trying to regain balance, we notice, remember, observe, measure, witness, suspect, and probe. Some look at nature with inquisitive eyes; some pay attention to a subtle shift in use of language; some become activists; some bring themselves together as a community of learners.
