I don’t write to be famous, I don’t write to be known, I write because I am and I want to be read. How sad to fill a room with paintings no one sees or play music no one hears. Writing is talking without sound, singing without score and dancing without movement and yet, it is all of them. It is a solitary art conjured from thought and expressed by the need to communicate.

HEAD-SLAPS, SPEED-BUMPS and LIGHT-BULBS, one woman's WTF, oops and ah-ha moments of life.

They were published once, and as every writer knows, once is not enough.

An-ti-ci-pay-yay-tion is makin’ me wait


 
Anticipation in an interesting word, it explains the time between buying a lottery ticket and the drawing. It’s the long and sometimes futile wait between "I’ll call" and the time it takes for you to call him. Anticipation is eagerness to either experience that which you yearn for or what you fear most. It’s the mind’s foreplay when imagining an outcome.

I am anticipating good news and expecting silence. Though mutually exclusive, perhaps they are brothers and silence is good news.

I love the thoughts which swim in my mind when I’ve sent something out and wait for a reply. Denying that no reply means no I wait, and think, and wait, and think, like a sea captain's wife hanging out up on the roof in the widow’s walk; he’ll come back, heartbreak, he’ll come back, heartbreak.

What are you anticipating?
My anticipation? The time between this post and a reply.

  1. I love this post. I am always in anticipation over so many areas of my life that it borders on absurd. Anticipating a lottery win, my next follower, the look on a certain persons face when I create a new dinner.

  2. Hey Cook...will I, won't I, will he, won't he, will they, won't they, will she, won't she, the ying and yang of life.
    That look on someone's face when you create a new dinner...absolute pleasure because you are a broad that can cook.

  3. Ever have the feeling of anticipation but you don't know why? There's nothing you can think of that you are waiting for and yet, the anticipation is in your gut. That's my feeling right now.
