Stories are told and then they are done. Some are longer, some are shorter but they are all stories: self contained, self sufficient. Complete.
I like that idea.
It's ironic as I often feel that my thoughts are left unfinished, that they have an unsatisfactory conclusion but, in their own way, this is how those stories were supposed to be told at that time - that was all there was.
Not a word more, not a word less.
