Waiting - De File
Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
I don't know what I'm waiting for. I sit here at night, following link after link that holds little interest, waiting for Bean to come running out to the sofa. I feel like it's my duty to intercept her. But the waiting is more than that. I'm waiting for the storm to come ashore. I'm waiting for rain. I'm waiting for the waiting to be over. I sleep only two or three hours each night. My eyes feel like manhole covers. Am I keeping my eyes open because I'm afraid of what I'll see when I close them? I'm waiting. I'm waiting it out. If only I knew what that "it" is.

As metaphor?

For me, metaphor often is an ailment!

As Pynchon: Behind the initials was a metaphor, a delirium tremens, a trembling unfurrowing of the mind's plowshare...

harr. touche. have youread the louise hay stuff? she's got a metaphor for every twinge. although of course she is nowhere near as cool as susan sontag. but i can get a bit overloaded w the import of things. something might be about something else, but by the time it's self perpetuating it gets to be more about itself - the not sleeping, that is.
i hope your netaphor gets better

Aren't we all waiting life out, I suppose. It's just a matter of keeping occupied.

Man, that's a tragic thought. I'm going to go and find something to take up time. :)
