We seem to spend a lot of time waiting and yet we are incredibly impatient. Maybe if we were more patient we wouldn’t have to wait so long – or at least we wouldn’t notice. I try think of it as an opportunity to think, watch and maybe there will be an opportunity to talk with someone, help someone, solve that problem that has been troubling me. It is necessary punctuation to a busy day. Waiting is the full stops, commas and paragraph endings that make it flow and emphasise points that otherwise would drift into the blur of non stop doing.
