Normal service will resume shortly, but I thought I’d finally give this a go. The following extract was written entirely whilst listening to the Rolling Stones song ‘Waiting on a Friend’, and is my contribution to Lance’s 100-word-song meme.
These streets are carefree. My mind is full, thinking of her. My smile has slipped a little in the time since we last met. There’s something about this feeling of waiting and watching out for the person I hope will come around the corner. Good conversation is in short supply, but that will be rectified as soon as I see her. Waiting for a friend is the most difficult thing in the world, knowing that they will come, but not knowing when. I rehearse my words, so I am ready, so I don’t waste a single solitary little tiny word.
Wishing you peace and strength on your journeys,
