The Waiting Place (Thank you, Dr. Suess)

Waiting for responses on submissions.  (Receiving them, complying with requests, and then waiting some more.)

Waiting for our caster to get on the ball.

Waiting for people to complain at me for the caster not being on the ball.

Just waiting.

Staring at Quickbooks, waiting to understand what the heck it can do.

Waiting for the commissions in the works to come in.

Waiting forthe first commission from our contracting studio.  Waiting to see how it goes.

Waiting for my painting to improve enough that I don’t secretly hate everything I paint just because I have to stare at Drew’s better painting all day.

Just waiting.

Waiting for the money to run out.

Waiting for responses on our queries to game companies.

Waiting for the next social activity to get my mind off it all.

Just waiting.

"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 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 string of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting."

Just waiting.
