Angwin's interest, broadly, is in a Zen take on psychogeography, and Bardo is a book of thresholds and transitions-inner and outer; a series of journey meditations recorded in prose poems and poetry. The starting point for these explorations is the human being, as a conjunction of time and space, also inhabiting a continuous now. Whether she's contemplating a Neolithic longbarrow, the woodpecker on her birdfeeder, the metaphysical implications of quantum reality, a Palestinian refugee camp or the unpredictability of human love, her attention turns on how we navigate transience and uncertainty and find a stillpoint within that.
