And so it begins….Kosh's words echoed in my head yesterday as it became clear that the end is approaching. I will do the first writeup today. I have only a few simple but cardinal rules, and he violated one. But the day ends as a blend of up and down: an unexpected, irresistible find; progress on other fronts at the office and a pleasant hour of conversation. I am exhausted when I go to bed again but I do not feel beaten down. I haven't felt that way yet, which is why I endure it, being consumed by my work.
