Can't Put the Pen Down…

When It’s Over

“It’s not over till the fat lady sings.”
Pretty sure I’ve done that.
“It’s all over but the crying.”
Pretty sure I’ve done that too.

But “It’s not over till it’s over”
has locked me in a circular reference
that denies the possibility of closure
or of starting over.

I propose a new adage:
“It’s over when I say it’s over.”

    Good sayings to ponder. I always wonder when something is over, or more aptly. when is time to give up or let go, and move on. I always doubt myself: I am giving up too soon or have I been kicking a dead horse? Trying to live by the comic’s credo: Leave. Leave them wanting more.
