I’m waiting for the call that says my new glasses are ready, and for the proof of Following Frankie to arrive so I can give it one last look before publication, and for whatever winter this is to blow on through and let spring settle in, and for the results of the blood test I was supposed to have had done seven months ago except for this pandemic. I’m waiting for my first in-person meeting with Kavya, and for my first steps back into the world to be a little less hesitant, and for the next project to suggest itself to me, and for musicians to start gathering again at the community center so I can join in, and, as the poet said, I am perpetually awaiting a rebirth of wonder.
And I’m thankful that I have yet to be disappointed by that last one.
One thought on “Waiting”
Wonderful to hear your book is at the proof stage. Exciting. Who did you publish with this time? I’m waiting, too. Although fully vaccinated, it’s hard to accept going out to join “the great unwashed”. Can’t imagine when I’ll feel free to dine in again or attend an indoor concert. Grateful for being an introvert that’s made this past year’s isolation more bearable. Good to hear your “voice”.
