Duration Duration (Coming to Meet)

Waiting makes it. A young man may wait forever for his true love, but after several years he’s no longer a young man. Similarly, lines at banks take longer than expected. But dreams come true in time-lapse photography. You quickly reach the head of the line where a beautiful clerk accepts your deposit. A one-hundred-year plant blossoms in seconds. An island in the sea is born in a spray of ash and steam grows, washes away, and grows again, transforming a pile of hot boulders to a lovely green oasis. These are the rewards of patience. If you haven’t got it then at least you could admire those who have instead of despising them for their lack of drive, instead of laughing when they belabor their meager privileges subject to the cold stares of stingy bosses and unloving wives.
