Have a look at the class ContextPart, especially the method
#swapSender:. thisContext is a special variable that returns the
current execution context, an instance of ContextPart.
You might also want to have a look at Seaside (www.seaside.st). It
comes with an implementation of Continuations in plain Smalltalk. This
is a bit more than what you are asking for, but it also uses
#swapSender: at some point to switch back to a previous execution
