Waiting for Godot – oops! waiting for the bus

Waiting for the bus near my home I couldn’t help but notice the very great number of very big trucks delivering all manner of goods: milk, fruit and vegetables, meat, household goods, etc. And I thought about how lucky we are: We live in a city of 4-4.5 million people and everything we want is brought to us. We don’t need to go out to farms, factories, orchards, etc. – things are brought to us.
But importantly, waiting and watching I had time, a great deal of time, waiting for the bus and I used this time to think about all manner of things, such as pondering the value of life and asking myself important questions about the deliveries of lifegiving items while I wait for the bus, and wait … and wait for a bus to come along in this busy city of ours.
