One Hundred Waitings
I was always drawn to waiting, which sometimes I get the feeling is the only thing I’ve ever really done.
— Sergio Chejfec
Knowing how to see, before sight, knowing how to hear, before comprehension, to keep the space of waiting open.

Wait with me. Wait with me though the waiting might be the call of good-byes.
— Claudia Rankine
Everyone seems to be waiting, said Geryon. Waiting for what? said Ancash. Yes waiting for what, said Geryon.
— Anne Carson
One Hundred Waitings is an ongoing collection of poems, entries and essays, written in waiting —as a temporary situation, as a place one returns to, as a way of being in the world. The project began in September of 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic and is ongoing. A collection of all entries can be found here.
