Betwixt and Between represents sometime in life, undecided, and somewhere between two alternatives, neither here nor there. I was in a midway position, in the middle of a period of time. A bit confused, but I was certain of leaving without any possible explanation.  The exposed concrete buildings were used as a metaphor.  I felt imprisoned inside a rigid and impregnable construction, not only the system but the limitations of life. It is painful to rebel directly against the walls. In order to travel, I leaned out over the iron railings instead, leveraging the power of those restrictions.  With the light that this brought, I was less panicked at least, in spite of the fact of being in an uncertain situation; partly virtual, partly real; seemingly virtual and real at the same time that I could not tell. The shadows cast over my travel become the echo of an ongoing journey.
