In Parentheses (カッコ内)

"We are in transit through non-place for more and more of our time, as if between immense parentheses..." Non-Places An Introduction To An Anthropology Of Supermodernity by Marc Augé

It was home. I have always thought of it as a series of islands. It is such an immense, densely populated city. I knew the neighborhoods I lived or worked in, the bars and restaurants that became my extended living spaces. But, that vast in-between traveled through to get from one to the other, and the anonymous passersby who populate it, remained a mystery. It was like a story board that had had the main plot removed. Frozen between ‘before’ and ‘after’, it allowed for misunderstandings, surprising twists, leaps of faith and unforeseen connections.
