Lacuna – by Leigh Morrow




  • an unfilled space or interval; a gap.


“the journal has filled a lacuna in Middle Eastern studies”

  • a missing portion in a book or manuscript.


Pause is also a synonym for Lacuna, a cool noun which means an empty space or a hole, where something should be. It’s used a lot when we talk about missing parts of books or manuscripts that have been lost, or had parts removed by censors.

What now, in Midlife, is your lacuna or unfilled space? What empty gaps are there that need words to tell the story, or laughter to fill the hole? What is missing, and yet, used to be part of your life story?  These empty spaces, will become your portal for discovery.
