Fanfare and such...

I had my last Rankin Inlet hamlet council meeting this afternoon. And it was a strange experience.

I had to check my "story radar" at the door a bit. It seems I've conditioned myself to keep an updated mental list of "upcoming" stories. Now that I know I only have a week and a bit left... I no longer need that. It was weird to almost feel myself THINK the story idea, and then put a big line through it.

But probably what will stick in my mind forever was the very end, just before they adjourned - when I told everyone it was my last meeting.
