expectant

Expectant, I write. Not truly sure where to go. With my writing today. I realize the complexity of waiting. Not as simple as it seems because I grow impatient. Rather quickly. Wait here. Wait until tomorrow. Wait around and see. Just wait. Wait a minute. I’ve written about waiting before. But now, today, I am … More expectant

wait

I wrote the following, I don’t know when. And posted it in this section of my website entitled “other writings”. But I decided to post it here today….where it’s more accessible to my regular readers. I met a friend for an early dinner this evening. And I was reminded, very clearly, about waiting. My friend … More wait

Yesterday was dark, dreary, chilly, raining.  My mood lagged.  My thoughts fearful and low. Today the sun shines. Bright. And I’m more … More light

staircase

Here’s the analogy: Life is similar to a staircase.  We keep climbing, striving, going up and up.  Moving towards goals.  Moving towards the end. Yet I’ve stopped climbing.  I’ve reached a floor, maybe the fourth.  Maybe the forty-fifth.  It doesn’t matter so much the number.  But I can’t locate the staircase.  I’m wandering around, lost, … More staircase
