Delayed Gratification

Sometimes it’s months later that you find out whether your plans came true or not.

A reconnaissance trek reveals photos of a bruised and battered enemy from a while back. Not quite what was asked for but not a bad start either.

Or the way you never know your airplay this quarter til three quarters from now.

Keep your eyes and ears open – you may well find you already got your wish or the start thereof while your attention was directed to lesser matters. Then again, some would say the only way to find wishes fulfilled is to direct attention to other matters so things can percolate in the background without intrusion.

[On the other hand, there’s a time and a place to fuck off and leave the matter alone and find another focus… in all these notes I presume I’m referencing rational people, not lunatics who won’t take “get lost” for an answer.]
