the waiting is the hardest part

As Petty says, it really is the hardest part, and there's nothing like the beginning of a new year to point out that we can do no more than wait for time to carry us forward and for events to come to us in their due course. Most of the time, there is little for us to do but wait, which we tend to fill with pondering--as the carved troll appears to be doing, sitting--as Paul was doing out on the porch, and longing--as Farley was doing, watching Paul on the porch.
