SUNRISE - January 8, 2011

“Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite.  Or waiting around for Friday night or waiting perhaps for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil or a better break or a string of pearls or a pair of pants or a wig with curls or another chance.  Everyone is just waiting”.  ~ Dr. Seuss

Perhaps the immense value of TIME is wasted on the young.  Only as one begins to count the grains of sand left in the hourglass, does the true worth of golden time begin to dawn (the precursor to Sunrise) on each of us.

“Good things come to those that wait”.  (…Is an English phrase propounding the virtue of patience) Waiting for what or whom?  It is ‘seize the day’, not ‘wait for the day’.  How about ‘death comes early to those that wait’ or ‘wait not and want not’ or as Benjamin Franklin said: “You may delay, but time will not”.

"We wait. We are bored.        No, don't protest, we are bored to death, there's no denying it. Good. A diversion comes along and what do we do? We let it go to waste... In an instant all will vanish and we'll be alone once more, in the midst of nothingness!"    - Samuel Beckett, Waiting for Godot
