It’s September, the time where, in the Western Hemisphere at least, we step into the grey and yellow Autumn (at last!). A good time for the marking of thresholds, boundaries, moments of passing. A good time for a story, and a cup of tea for the reading of it. And so – the Thresholds Project.
I’d like to thank everyone who sent in a piece in. I have chosen three submissions to share: a poem by Kenneth Porteous, ‘Rear-view Mirror’, and two short stories, one by Bethany Anderson, ‘Morning After The Night Before’ and ‘Winning’ by Michelle Bailat-Jones. Diverse takes on the subject matter, but all of them share a certain tenseness that is to be found on the borderlines, a darkness and poignancy over unstable ground. I’ll be posting the stories at intervals throughout the day. Little pops of narrative for a languid Sunday.
