It was some years ago that two friends were having a conversation long distance while looking at their brand new day planners. One of them came to an Equinox month and found the following listing on September 23, 1999:
— Japan (Tentative)
Look for yourself…
What the? How on earth (or rather how in heaven) could an equinox be only tentatively scheduled? Did it have other plans? Maybe thought it could get away for a long weekend rendezvous with the solstice?
But then, like a shooting star flashing across our universe, we realized it would make a fabulous name for a production company and so it was that Tentative Equinox was born.
It’s become for us a metaphor for the delicate and tenuous balance of life: dark and light, routine and risk, self and others, work and family.
I am Tentative Equinox North, and I write at this blog, (although I prefer the word bjournal). You can find out 100 things about me here, and some other stuff, some of which may be redundant, in the author info on the sidebar.
There is a Tentative Equinox South, and she writes here.
We currently have no Tentative Equinox West or Tentative Equinox East. Although I warn you the application process is long and arduous, and may or may not include lightning storms (see #53 on 100 things about me) and earthquakes.
