The other definition of limbo is the Indian dance in which the dancer bends backwords in order to pass under a horizontal bar that is progressively lowered. I think this definition is a more accurate picture of what it feels like to be "in limbo". You feel like if you bend any further, you might snap in two. And the fire is a nice touch in this picture. Nothing like the fear of incineration to help you bend backwards even further. Funny but there is no one standing around in festive hats clapping for me right now and I am bent way backwards!
Limbo is a most unusual "unplace" in which to find yourself. Have you ever found yourself there for an undetermined amount of time? How did you cope?
