In Stephen King’s wonderful novel ‘Black House’, he discusses the concept of slippage. A quaint term used to describe the tendency for people who desperately want to hold on to at least an illusion of normality even when that is no longer possible. Slippage is like standing in the house known as ‘Rose Red’. A dwelling that appears OK at first glance but which is, in fact, quite insane. Some of us can perceive slippage rather well. Others of us are blind to it. Blind that is, until the pressure of forces beyond our control crash down around our heads and thrust us into a new and disturbing reality.
