That Perfect Moment of Completion

It is reaching the first vista as the sun is setting, and the sky has been painted tangerine and magenta by the gold-salmon sun that still hovers above the distant horizon. It sets on where you have been, and the path to where you will be stretches up and up.

For now, there is no need to dwell on the distance that has been travel or remains left to travel. There is only the perfect moment of completion, you skin kept warm by the magnitude of your accomplishment, and the air flavored with victory.

There are no numbers. No totals. Just two of the most important words to any author: The End.
