It's not the end of the job yet, but I can see the end from here. By October 28 I will be finished.

It has been a huge task, and plenty of other people have worked on it, too. But I take real pride in in my part of culling the files -- we made a net reduction of around 90%. At home we're doing similar things, celebrating not just a day but a season of Discardia.

I am so desperately going to miss working. Not just the chance to go to San Francisco every workday, or the income, or the pleasant and interesting co-workers, although I will miss all of them. I will miss the purposefulness and sense of accomplishment of work.

Industriously sending out resumes.

How do you handle the end of a job?
