Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1161: Just Gotta Wait

What’s the time? Where is the day? What happened to the weather?

Once more I was in La Perouse yesterday and I was hoping for rain but the rain stopped when I arrived. Alas, this means that I was not able to view what I was there to view under what would be optimal conditions for viewing. That said, it still made for a nice walk. Now I’m here, inside, typing away and hoping the weather shifts to something less dreary. The plus side is I’m inside but I want nice sky. I want to see the sly and I want it to be a little more dry than it currently is.

I want my right hand to warm up a bit more too, but you can’t have everything.

So I sit here and I think about things and I think about how change is both rapid and slow and sometimes we can control this. Maybe it would be better to say that sometimes we can influence this, but this is not a place for saying things in a way that is good, though sometimes it is. Depends on the day, really.

I want to be outside watching the waves and seeing how they interact with the coastline but instead I am here in suburbia working, which is what is expected of me at the moment and that’s fine. That’s okay, but at the same time it is not and that is due to a series of reasons that I won’t get into right now as it’s not worth the time and effort.

Right now I’d much rather spend my time creating and trying to conjure worlds and settings and see what comes of it all. I don’t know if I could do that in a reasonable amount of time at this particular juncture. That said, I have to wonder as to what constitutes a reasonable amount of time. Right now it’s probably between now and the point where I get too tired to do much more, if anything at all. Who knows when that will be.

It’s gloomy but that’s fine. It’s fine that it’s gloomy but I just want some nicer weather. Can’t have that right now and that too is fine. Just gotta wait and keep on powering on and hope for the best. Maybe expect the worst but I doubt that the worst will be something that I have to engage with on any level at any point of today.

Perhaps I’m overthinking it, but I won’t worry about that until a bit later on today as I need to think about the now and I need to go on and think more about the day and all those other things that I need to think about, but I don’t need to and really what I’m doing is stalling for time, but it’s time being spent on something and it’s an attempt at being productive, though it seems misguided.

Anyway, that’s all until the next thing.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 05:52:13

Not great and meanders but it came forward pretty easily.

Written at home.
