The corridor is an insight, an anxiety, a filth, a drip, a shriek, a simile, a sentiment, a yearning, a puzzle. Many look for the entrance, few step in, none pass through unchanged. Those on the outside wish they were in, while those traveling through struggle with their own personal fears. The corridor has stained tiles, handicap handrails, elevators and stairwells, dripping ceilings, and dark passageways best traveled backwards and alone. Its members are the sick, the psychotic, the incarcerated, the persevering, the wavering, the caring, the harassed, the educated, the beaten down, the thoughtful, the malignant, the indignant, those near-to-death, and those already there. These are their stories.
