On Vox: Waiting is not my strong suit

I was SFO waiting for Dave's flight to get in. I got there early, because, well, I'm impatient and eager. Of course it was delayed.

It's funny the tricks the mind will play on you as you wait. Time and perspective gets shifted. 45 minutes can feel like days. Staying present in the moment is next to impossible as I wait for an scheduled or appointed time to arrive.

Then the moment finally comes and what you were waiting for is right here, and all sense of time and wondering and impatience disappears and you just want to hold on to the moment for as long as possible. And before you can even stop to think about it again, 3 days has gone by and it felt like less than 45 minutes.
