In this piece I meditate on vital interrelationships among rhythm, will, readiness, and grace in cultivating thresholds of embodied, aesthetic, and edifying activities with other persons. Every moment of our lives holds potential for change—for noticing or becoming something new. This is so in our daily activities as ordinary persons and as scholars seeking to learn about, appraise, and (re)present our own and others’ practices. But how do the everyday moments of our lives in both capacities become significant thresholds? What say do we have in shaping the possible directions and worlds they disclose to us?
