Waiting

Since the beginning of pandemic people are living in a constant state of waiting. Waiting for pandemic to be over; waiting for the ending of another lockdown; waiting for the results of the PCRs; waiting for their loved ones from hospitals; waiting for new measurements to be introduced.

The state of waiting has been following us since the early ages. If one looks globally, we are always in anticipation of something. Every day we are waiting for the bus to come, our queue in the supermarket, our coming late friend.

People from the post USSR are especially familiar with this feeling. Waiting for them was just a way of life. They were waiting for months for a postcard telling that they finally can buy long wanted washing machine. There were waiting in a queue not even knowing what they are queuing for.

Someone might find pleasure in this situation of uncertainty and being in limbo, while others can be impatient and wish everything would be certain.
