Transit - 1998

There is a term for each epoch which would describe its condition. "Vanitas Vanitatem", for example, could sum up the Baroque.

I can see more and more affinity betwenn the technical term "TRANSIT" which is familiar to every "Passenger", and our state of being, that of a species living at the beginning of a new millenium.

But of course, all these labellings are mere measures to sketch the facets of the essentially unchanging human condition.

In my eyes the term "TRANSIT" captures my state very well, maybe as a "Fourth State of Matter". "TRANSIT" stands for the conditions under which I work, rather than for their contents.
