I cut my left hand today. Not badly, but enough for it to bleed for what seemed like forever. As I held a paper towel to the cut with my right hand I found I was rendered useless. I couldn't do anything. I paced around thinking of all the things I should be accomplishing while waiting for my cut to stop bleeding. Then it occurred to me to just STOP.
I sat down and started to think about waiting. How much of our lives are spent in that suspended state. Waiting for a plane. Waiting for a phone call. Waiting for a check in the mail. On and on. Just waiting.
Waiting is exhausting.
