The dictionary explains: not all pauses 
are preludes to a tapering off or an end. 

And pauses are not always instances 
of hesitation. Some pauses are brief 

stops on the way to an intended destination— 
the stop simply provides some kind of rest, 

relief; a chance to refuel, after which 
the action that came before the pause 

comes into play again. Regular 
traffic pauses to let a funeral 

cortège through: hearse after hearse 
after hearse, seemingly without end.
