What is final?
Is it being done and walking away? Is it completing a race and never returning to the sport? Is it finishing a project and putting away the tools?
There are a lot of ways that we define final but do we ever really mean final and walk away from it all or is there something in the back of our minds that always pulls us back and never lets us go completely. I say this because we do another race, we pick up the tools to do another project or tweak a program and we never walk away entirely.
Final is never final no matter how we look at it. I’ve tried and I wish it were easier. We move on and we do something else, go somewhere different, do another run with a new group, change the tools or the project but we never really can close the loop and call it final. I think it is just a part of life.
