Waiting, Choosing, Eating

Every day, we do the same thing.

We wait.

We’re waiting for something to happen.

Or for someone to come along to give us the answer.

We wait for that big transcendental Other, that Godot, to come along.

We have a choice, we think.

We choose.

We consult.

And hope for the best.

And then we eat.

And after all that, we’ll be merry.

  1. I find myself immersed in the sumptuous clutter of the ordinary while reading and viewing your work. I think about the nature of waiting, as I wait to catch up with myself, for the Big Good Thing I’m supposed to do with my time here to fall into my lap. While I wait, the moments are filled with tasks, minutia, functions of being alive.
    I try to remember to be present in this Now, because this is life, so far as it goes. I don’t want to miss it while I’m kicking my heels and waiting for Kismet to clobber me.
    Thanks for the beautiful, thought provoking moments. The food, the posture of anticipation, the questions that clutter the human experience.
