Sample Excerpt

"A transition is the space where a passage takes place, where we undergo a change or metamorphosis that takes us from here to there. Generally, people don’t like hanging out in flux. If there was a fast-forward button for transition, it’d be worn out. The author and biochemist Isaac Asimov once said, "Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome."
