Waiting – As soon as I saw the title for this week’s photo challenge, I started to hum this song. I really couldn’t get it out of my head so I stole a few verses from Waiting on the World to Change by John Mayer to move between the images below.

In all the photos that I have taken, the ones that show waiting have been on the coast. Although our home on the coastline has changed over the years, we have always taken pictures of Ireland’s east coast. So, it seems fitting to answer the challenge with exactly that. We walked the coastline as we waited for our wedding day. We walked the coast when we waited for our settled married life to start. We walked the shore as we tried to find a home to call ‘ours’. We walked the sandy beaches waiting for our first child to be born and we walked the beaches when we needed to put that same unsettled child to sleep. It feels like our entire life so far was spent waiting by the sea.

 

 

Me and all my friends

We’re all misunderstood

They say we stand for nothing and

There’s no way we ever could

 

 

 

Now we see everything that’s going wrong 

With the world and those who lead it

We just feel like we don’t have the means

To rise above and beat it

 

 

 

So we keep waiting

Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting

Waiting on the world to change

 

 

It’s not that we don’t care,

We just know that the fight ain’t fair

So we keep on waiting

Waiting on the world to change

 

 

And we’re still waiting

Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting, waiting on the world to change

One day our generation Is gonna rule the population

So we keep on waiting Waiting on the world to change

 

 

Thanks for looking. What does “Waiting” mean to you?
