People Watching: Waiting

"Waiting is a trap. There will always be reasons to wait. The truth is, there aer only two things in life, reasons and results, and reasons simply don't count." ~ Dr. Robert Anthony

Does not fit into the category of people watching you say? I'll tell you this, Emma is all 100% people trapped into a cat's body :). That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

BTW, she's waiting for the kitties that visit us every night. I don't know who owns those kitties - sometimes they bring their whole family - but they come every single night for a little chow at the backyard. I'm thinking of buying wood and making a little cat B&B in the back so when it rains those poor kitties have a place to stay dry.

  7. A fine series with pictures to accompany a text to think about. I regard sleep as waiting, but can't do much about that! :-)

  11. Waiting can be such a waste of one's lifetime. Whenever I can, I try to avoid unnecessary waiting.

  22. I love people watching. The best place for that I've found is at an airport.

    I myself don't like waiting at all. Doing nothing drives me crazy. I have to be doing something, so I either walk or read while waiting...or people watch.
