the waiting place...

so, i have kinda been absent from this wonderful place for good reason - nesting.  however, with all of this "hurry up and get ready to wait" business, i have had the words of one of my favorite authors come to mind over and over again.  now, if you have read more than 2 posts on this blog you know what i am all busy waiting for - i have a feeling, however, that this may relate to many of you on different levels in your own lives:
you can get so confused
that you'll start in to race
down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace
and grind on for miles across weirdish wild space, 
headed, i fear, toward a most useless place. 
                                         the waiting place...

...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 sting of pearls, or a pain or pants
or a wig with curls, or another chance.
everyone is just waiting.   -dr. seuss
anyone else there with me?  i know this waiting game will not be forever, but sometimes it can sure feel like it.

i hope whatever you are waiting for comes quickly.
