day 21: where i stand.

ok. i went a little crazy on this one. and yes, i’m addicted to the little collage thing-ys this week. so sue me. i can’t help it… it just how my creative juices are flowing. well i went crazy taking pictures of the places where i was standing simply because i was standing (in line!) so many places. felt like i was constantly standing & waiting today.

waiting. one of the hardest things to do. super hard to wait in a line, when your brain is thinking of the 10 million other things you’ve gotta do, or of the 10 bajillion other things you’d much rather be doing than waiting in line. but, waiting in lines is a fact of life. i usually do serious people watching when i’m standing around. i make up stories of what they’re doing, where’s they’re from, and what their lives are like. sometimes i go a little crazy with my imagination. it’s pretty easy to do when you’re visiting the immigration offices. so, how do you keep yourself busy in lines?

then there’s waiting for answers or for problems to be solved. waiting for things to get better. waiting for what might/might not happen. here’s when my imagination gets the best of me. in an attempt to control things, i make up scenarios of what may or may not happen, and i drive myself crazy while i’m waiting.

nope. i’m not a fan of waiting. but, wait, i must. and somehow,  i will figure out how to pass the time… perhaps look around & live in the moment. hmmm… have i said that before?

waiting to get the day starting. and waiting in lines all over the city today.

 where i stood just before i satisfied my inner little american girl with a mcdonalds lunch in the sun.

good luck standing & waiting. sending you patient vibes & peace.

  1. Jag har lärt mig att istället för att bli frustrerad över att få vänta på sin tur ska man tänka: Så skönt, nu får jag vila mig en stund!

  2. Ah, remember those days of queues where everyone ignores everyone else…

    Nice shoes you are standing in 🙂
