If you were to make a chart of these days of waiting, a graph of our emotional well being--some kind of bar graph, or a best-fit line, perhaps--today would be a line that swoops well below the baseline. Today would be a bar that shoots so far down the entire scale of the graph would have to be re-drawn to accommodate this horrible new data set. In these long, protracted days, you try and keep your spirits up, you try and keep yourself distracted and thinking positively. But today, the darker thoughts crept in, the only thing that keeps us going is the knowledge that this has to end sometime.
