“You’re traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind…It is the middle ground between light and shadow…a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of the imagination...”
It is unfortunate that the phrase, The Twilight Zone, will forever be associated with fear and creepiness. The literal twilight zone – that suspension of ethereal daylight before night seeps slowly across the sky – IS a middle ground, a place to inspire the imagination, somewhere between light and shadow. It is a wondrous land, and lingers tantalizingly during the weeks around winter solstice. I like to travel there and release the boundaries of my imagination.
