To be captured on an elliptical orbit, to be in rotation, but bound to a path that reaches the closest and furthest points of approach.

The oval is the boundary between interior and exterior, and is the mechanism of balance which holds us on a dynamic journey. Apogee and perigee, the points of nearest and furthest orbit. Gravity like a pendulum, holding us in harmonic motion. Never being able to reach within the boundary, and constrained from flying at a tangent to it.
