These days i find i am waiting...with bated breath, just waiting! I've never been good with suspense but it seems that this is one thing i cannot rush and will just have to wait out..ever so patiently. All this waiting reminds me of Samuel Beckett's play "Waiting for Godot" where the main character doesn't even pitch up, urggggh! It also reminds me of an excerpt from one of my favourite poems, "Oh the places you will go" by Dr Seuss...let me share the bit about waiting with you....

...for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come,
or a plane to go or the mail to come,
or the rain to go or the phone to ring,
or the snow to snow
or waiting around for a Yes or a No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake

or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a sting of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting

I find it rather tiring all this waiting, but at the same time i find myself all giddy over "the unknown", right now there are so many possibilities, it's rather exhilirating....and there is nothing to do but wait....wait....wait....wait.
