A Song in my Head

For some reason, I've been thinking about this:

Watch from 1:06



I never realized that Jeremy Brett plays Freddy Eynsford-Hill in My Fair Lady.

"Tell her that I'll wait," he says.

Waiting as both metaphor and ontology behoves comment. In other words, what does waiting stand for and what does waiting in itself do/ mean if it were to be a metaphor for all of life?

One waits in order that one can have something/someone to wait for. It is the postponement of life as we know it, because it gives nothing of itself in the present. It is a transference of possibility to the future. It is also a proclamation of hope with the concurrent acknowledgement of emptiness in the present. A universe of equal parts life and limbo.
