endings

Her job was going to end soon.  And she thought about the many ways she savored the end of things…

  • dessert at the conclusion of a meal.
  • the jingle of spare change left after the bill was paid. Even better, she enjoyed using up all of her spare change.
  • the end bits of soap, the last drabs of lotion, the final swipe of lip balm.
  • sunsets, which she found infinitely more interesting than sunrises.
  • hearing how the day went rather than what was on the agenda for the day ahead.
  • the way in which a good story concluded.
  • the return to home and routine and familiarity at the end of a journey.
  • the last moment before she fell asleep every day and said good night to all the darkness of that day.

 

The end could sometimes be really good.
