WPC: Waiting pays off

It is always good to leave some room for waiting. For the sun. For the miracle. For you to come along.

“I’m a patient boy,” sang Fugazi. “And I wait and I wait and I wait.” Here is a previous post with examples of waiting from my life that includes this song.

Not just me, the entire Slovenia is waiting for the next basketball game on Tuesday and the winking first medal from any championships. Only three more games left. I loved the commentary by an American commentator caught online: “I like the culture of this group.”

Here are some others who are waiting. Slovenian proverb says: “Kdor čaka, dočaka.” Waiting pays off. (Click on the first photo and let’s wait together.)

    1. Thanks, Prior, I’m so glad you like it, lovely what you say! 🙂 The word-by-word translation would be “Who waits, waits through.” Or something. 😀

        ah – that translation sounds deep.
        like go the distance …?
        and I told my hubs about something you said –
        we were walking on this newly opened bridge (kinda a big deal in town) and there were protestors and I grabbed photos – and then interviewed a hippy girl with dreads.
        it was fun.
        I said “I am photo’s out”
        and literally a minute later took a photo of a heron.
        Photo’d out? – he asked and chuckled.
        he knew it was a blogger thing.
        and then I mentioned what you told me – cos it was really fun M-cubed.
        How I read your post about being phot’d out, burned out etc.
        and then you chimed back….
        “just took 33 photos this morning”
        ha
        oh so good.

      2. Hehe, great. Herons would do that to you. And I always say that by blogging we ripple. In this post are some of the 33: the birds, the vineyard, the cat and the fridge magnets.

    1. 😀 Good to know, Sara! Today I went to Twitter after a while to see about Irma, but then I saw many posts on Livorno and didn’t know what happened! And then I did. 😦 It’s two hours away, we had just a thunderstorm in the night. What about basketball, are you watching? I didn’t watch Italy play but I see you are in the similar position as Slovenia: on Tuesday playing for semifinals! Bravi noi! 😉 And we can only meet in the finals, imagine that!! Good luck against Serbia! (We have Latvia.)

        What happened in Livorno is awful…

        I love all kind of sports, but unfortunately they are showing basketball only on payTV and I don’t have it *sigh* Good luck against Latvia!

        It’s awful…they have started to show even certain events of the Olympics through payTV (even if it’s against the rules of the Olympic Games which declare they should be available to everyone) I’m so angry 👿
