"I sing to use the waiting"
I'm not going to bore you with more blather about waiting. I'm just going to cite some other folks who've explored the topic, starting with Emily Dickinson who's quoted in the title of this post. There's a novel called Waiting by Ha Jin; also a film by the same title. There's book-to-film Waiting to Exhale (Terry McMillan). Jim Morrison was Waiting for the Sun. Tom Petty reminds us that The Waiting is the Hardest Part. In Samuel Becket's Waiting for Godot, waiting is boring, slavish, funny, pointless and intensely human: "Such is life."
