Remember that 1971 song by Carly Simon, “Anticipation”?

We can never know about the days to come
But we think about them anyway
And I wonder if I’m really with you now
Or just chasing after some finer day.

Anticipation, Anticipation
Is making me late
Is keeping me waiting

And I tell you how easy it feels to be with you
And how right your arms feel around me.
But I rehearsed those words just late last night
When I was thinking about how right tonight might be.

Anticipation, Anticipation
Is making me late
Is keeping me waiting

And tomorrow we might not be together
I’m no prophet. Lord, I don’t know nature’s way
So I’ll try to see into your eyes right now
And stay right here, ’cause these are the good old days.

Well, in my case, I’m still waiting to hear from that job in Houston. I’ll not give up no matter what. They may not call, but there will always be another day and another job to apply for there, and I just decided I won’t give up. One way or the other, I want that second chance to live and work in Houston again.

Just thought I’d post this quick update since I mentioned in my last post on November 1st that it would be about ten days before I would hear anything if they were going to pick me as one of the final candidates to interview. Today is Day #10. Of course, as I am writing this it is 5:00 a.m. and the day is still very, very young and nobody is up in Houston yet (in fact, very few are up here!!!).

A-N-T-I-C-I-P-A-T-I-O-N . . .

“But those who wait on the LORD 
      Shall renew their strength; 
      They shall mount up with wings like eagles, 
      They shall run and not be weary, 
      They shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

    One of the best gifts my x ever gave me was a complete cd set of all of Carly’s work because I’ve been a big fan since 1974!!! She heavily influenced my songwriting, as did Carole King and Joni Mitchell 🙂 Praying for you my friend!
