An end to an era

(sings) "And so we have come to an end... it's time to say 'So Long, my friends'..." Just posted the new ballot this morning, with only 3 nominations and 5 voters, I expect it will be very soon that I'll be out of a job and this blog will be named appropriately. I've mixed feelings - sad that J felt the need to leave, but happy that I was able to convince him that recognizing people for >>doing<< was better than recognizing for >>having done<<. Obviously, that was lost on the latest crop of hopefuls and will likely be totally reversed and the Guild will have a more "normal" get-your-sash-and-sit-on-your-laurels-forever style that seems to be more to the taste of the usual member. I have some other ideas going forward. Was considering a try at an Order but ultimately that just buys into the whole conceit and validates Bad Ideas. I'm thinking I need to practice writing more - playing around with ideas about religion and patriotism and Good Citizenship. Working title: "What would Merlin do..."
