Patience is not something that I am naturally gifted with. It is very difficult for me to wait for anything.
This past summer I was living in St Paul, MN waiting impatiently to start my internship. I was working very long hours at the Luther Seminary campus coffee shop and biding my time until I could move on to the next thing.
I spent a lot of my evenings walking in the neighborhoods around the campus. I guess this could be considered outdoor, long distance pacing. I would walk laps as I waited for the summer to pass. This was a park in the neighborhood. I am not clear if it has a name, but every once in awhile I would stop here to catch my breath and have some of the impatience dissipate.
