He wasn’t the first or last to say it, but he did say it with music, and Tom Petty was right: the waiting is the hardest part. It’s hard when you’ve been assured that you’ve done all you can do and that the outcome will probably be what you want and expect–you just don’t know when to expect it. It’ll come when it comes…and when it does, it won’t even be the end. You’re waiting for the thing that will start everything else. While you ‘re waiting, you can start on some of the everything-else, but there’s only so far you can go with it before you have to set it aside…and wait. It’s the hardest part.
