the waiting game
There is quite a bit of language and thought spent on... waiting for someone to do something, waiting for something to have enough momentum of some kind, waiting for some more of something, waiting for some less of something, waiting for the right time, the right place, the right alignment of the universe... and, of course, waiting can be good. More often than not, waiting is an excuse to do nothing until something happens (something which probably never will but at least we can pretend to be practical and productive until it does).
I'm thinking we need more language and thought spent on... Who is waiting for me and what are they waiting for me to do? And then we do that.
