We celebrate ends.  Holidays, completions, funerals, fiscal years, careers.  Its end of our year.  We will celebrate a few things.  Christmas is at the end of the year.  So are many of my professional deadlines (though there are just as many every day).  Its good to get to the end for the celebration.  So often, I find myself trying to finish, to complete, to end.  I want enjoy beginning and the middle.  A lot depends on the middle . . .  building walls, driving trucks, shopping for machines, landscape changes, learning bodies of knowledge.  I like those middles.  Wins without finishes, points without competition, purity of doing, no end in site.  This year, I celebrate ends.  Ends with no middles.  Next year, I celebrate middles.
