The word is a favorite of mine, so it became the title of my site. “Midway”is the state of being in which I find myself often. Maybe you feel like I do, and often find yourself in an intermediate period of life rather than at a definitive beginning or ending.
“Midway” describes this transitory, evolving state of being. This site will host my writings and ideas in their varying states of completion and development.
