am thinking about the connections between national borders and psychological health
how life can be seen as a series of borders broached, approached, broken and backed away from
the ways that national borders shift and move and the shifting of national borders also shifts our own sense of belonging, psychological integrity, identity, dislocation. how are personal borders are pushed. how borders are maintained through violence. and how we are shaped by this violence.
and how do we integrate all of these broken borders? who are we in the midst of these borders. what does it mean to have ourselves, our personal, social, communal boundaries broken? how do we cope?
