As the pandemic winter begins to thaw, we might consider how our experience resembles one of the three phases of matter. Are we stuck where we sit, wedged solidly into a corner like an ill-fitting chair? Do our emotions overwhelm us without warning like a flash-flood's liquid panic? Or are our souls numb, every craze line and crevice filled in with the inescapable air of exhaustion?
We are who we are: irreducible. Like atomic matter, we also experience ourselves in ways which phase and shift. During our transition out of the psychic and physical restraints of Covid, we can ask ourselves what phase of matter we might become. Solid, liquid, or gas?
Solids hold their shape with authenticity.
Liquids take the shape of their containers revealing the contours of relationships.
Gases fill spaces with invisible presence, a subtle persuasion influencing life.
In the case of ice, water, and steam, HEAT serves as the catalyst
transforming one phase of matter into the next.
We can ask: what catalyses us?
