The word “limbo” has two meanings:
In Roman Catholic theology, when you died you could end up “in limbo” which meant you were floating eternally somewhere between heaven and hell. As if the idea of hell wasn’t scary enough, this was supposed to keep us on the straight and narrow.
The word “limbo” was also the name of a popular dance where I remember trying to squeeze under a pole by leaning backwards without falling down —maybe that’s where by back issues started –“lightbulb moment”!
Ok, my manuscript went off over a month ago and I am starting to picture it floating in limbo. Simon assures me it is in the good hands of the designers and will arrive in my in-box early next week. In the meantime, I am getting familiarized with “the acrobat” and all her high jinx so that the revision process should be a breeze.
