(My wise friend T said 'we have all the time' when I complained that we had run out of time. I write this in his honour)
Early in the morning, I was visited by Time. He was dressed as an old man but his face was so very young. He said I should wait and I asked him how long.
'Patience, my dear child, is what you need.' He answered.
'But I have been working so hard!' I complained.
'Yes. And you need to work even harder to prepare for your chance. Very soon, I will call you up and you must be ready when it is your turn.'
'How will I know when I am ready?'
'I will tell you.'
'What if I fail?'
'Whatever happens, you should learn from it. The experience is the most important thing.'
'But I am loosing faith!'
'Take it easy child. Enjoy the journey.'
