(By chris the cynic)
I’m a firm believer in the idea that the ending is the most important part because it colors all that came before. An ending that includes what everyone ended up doing five years down the line is very different from one in which the last lines are, “And the small child fell out of bed with a thud and woke up. It was all a dream.”
For those of us in the Gregorian calendar there’s a bit of an ending today. Hence the prompt for this open thread: Endings. Talk about them. Feel free to disagree with what I wrote above.
