Jovanovska imprints her thoughts, emotions, and worldview, in a grid of circles in "I Love It When I Wait for You." The artist associates the circle with the mother's womb, the fetus, the seed, the cell.

"A circle has no beginning, no end, no corners, no pages. It does not limit, although it gives form. In it and outside of it, everything is in motion, it is also the zero from which everything starts and to which everything eventually returns. It calls for action, symbolizes time cycles, the movement of planets around the Sun, totality, fulfillment, focus, togetherness, perfection, revolution, and evolution. Psychologically speaking, the circle allows us to imprint ourselves, that is, our "I", into one universal, boundless scheme of the universe and, thus, to equate ourselves with all living beings, even all that surrounds us."
