Today is Day Ten of
Thirty Days of Photography II.
Today's photo topic: WAITING
I'm waiting at the mailbox.
It used to be fun to wait for the check. Whether it was a payroll check or refund check or the check you got from your great aunt on your birthday, it was fun waiting on the check. The day it appeared in your mailbox was pure magic!
I'm still waiting at the mailbox.
Although direct deposit has taken all of the fun out of the anticipated check, I still have hope.
I wait for the check from the IRS with a letter telling me that they have made a mistake and they owe me $150,000 instead of the other way around.
I wait for the check from Reader's Digest Clearing House along with congratulations on being America's newest millionaire.
I wait for the check from the State of Texas along with the explanation that I have a long-lost, totally unknown uncle who left me his entire fortune along with his ranch that occupies most of Far West Texas.
I wait for the birthday check from the great aunt who has long since been deceased.
I camp out at the mailbox and wait with hope and determination and dream outlandish dreams of what I will do with the money once I have cashed that check.
I wait. I am patient. All I have left is the hope and the dreams and the mailbox.
