Waiting!

It is how Lebanon is feeling at the moment, how it has been feeling for the as long as I can remember…

Waiting for the war to start, and then for it to end… Waiting for an occupation to start and then end and for another one to start and then end...Waiting for the next assassination, and then waiting for next explosion...Waiting for the results for the national dialogue and then waiting for national consultation…waiting for another war to start and then to end… Waiting… just waiting…

These days the waiting is even worse… we are waiting for what will happen… for hell to break loose... for civil war… but still only waiting…

The tension is palpable and the pressure is suffocating. No one dares plan for more than a day or two ahead, for who knows what will happen meanwhile.

It is as if we live in a country with no future, just an extended present, and an overwhelming past.
