Someday, came

“If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story.”

Orson Welles

Dateline:  Retirement…press play…

It is very simply, time. 

Retirement was always just a thought, a someday way far away, that someday was always just smoke in the wind, you know, out there somewhere.

Pages on the calendar constantly flipping, day after day, month after month, year after year.

“You know, we’ll see, someday.”

This year, someday, came. 

“There is no real ending, it’s just the place where you stop the story.”

Frank Herbert
