SoCS prompt word: Long SoSC
How much longer will we have to wait? How much longer before Christmas? How long before dinner? How long is the book I have to read? How long does the manuscript have to be? How long before graduation? How long before the roast is cooked?
I had never thought of “long” as a negative word until beginning to write this post. I can think of very few things that we like to be long? Most of us (I think) prefer short nights, short blogs, short poems, short sermons, short trips. We accept short attention spans – for ourselves; we want others to have long attention spans. Obviously we want short illnesses, short wars, short arguments. Many people want long vacations until they take one, then they are happy to arrive back home. With few exceptions we want long life.
Remembering most of you what a short blog, I will sign off with one more thought.
