This week seems to be full of delays. Sunday, my flight was delayed due to traffic and well the weather. We did take off after waiting a few hours from the original departure time. Monday, my mother’s surgery was delayed a few hours. Yes, the surgery finally did occur. Tuesday, was delay free but today we have a ground cover of snow so the start of school is delayed a few hours.
I thought this wonderful work of art by Diebenkorn depicted “delay” or “waiting” so nicely. I can feel the emotion, the standing still of time, the waiting for an outcome or next move. How do you handle delays? Do you take that time to enjoy the added hours or does it mess up your plans? I always take it as time to think.
