The NYT has traced the first nachos back to Piedras Negras, Mexico, in 1940, with just three ingredients. As the story goes, a group of women walked into the Victory Club in Piedras outside business hours. Aiming to please, Ignacio Anaya, the maître d’hôtel known as Nacho, ran to the kitchen and made a quick appetizer with ingredients he found. Today’s nachos know no end to their variations: They can have a number of seasoned layers or simply be topped with cheese sauce, like those sold at concession stands. But the simplicity of its original, with its barely salted chips, nutty melted cheese and briny pickled jalapenos, is sure to charm true nacho fans.

“patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.”

they are mesmerized
by the carpet of tiny flowers in the grass
and sink right in.

that the shorter our time, the greater our capacity for waiting.”

i didn’t even know I was waiting
or that it was coming
but clearly they did
and we are celebrating.
‘It is a great piece of skill to know how to guide your luck even while waiting for it.”
while working hard to gather rocks for the garden
we look up to see the buzzards patiently waiting
the pressure is on
as we pick up the pace
just who/what are they waiting for?
“winning comes down to who can execute under pressure.”

you know you’ve been waiting quite a long time
at the secretary of state’s office
when even a minivan load of nuns get restless.
“I sometimes think I was born to live up to my name.
how could I be anything else but what I am having been named madonna?
i would have either ended up a nun or this.”
I have a hunch
that this guy
waited too long.
“nothing’s going to come to you by sitting around and waiting for it.”
