When I watch an ME show, death stops being just "the end" and starts becoming "a turn in the road", which is at times scary or fascinating or uplifting -- sometimes all three.

I pulled up WinAmp (because of this) and the first song to come on (I have my playlist on random.) was Counting Crows "Anna Begins": I'm not going to bend, and I'm not going to break and I'm not going to worry about it anymore. But then I start to think about the consequences ... I am not worried; I've done this sort of thing before ... She's talking in her sleep, it's keeping me awake and Anna begins to toss and turn, and every word is nonsense but I understand and Oh lord, I'm not ready for this sort of thing...

I think part of what is getting me mournful is everyone posting stuff like "Is that it? Am I done?" [reference: the Doyle video] and it's like, Hello, pre-emptive mourning much? I mean, we've got a whole half a season left, and it seems safe to say that Joss will be writing a satisfying (well as much as anything Joss ever is) ending.

And i don't know. I'm still kinda processing, and end of an era and all that. But part of me is already moving on (in large part because there are so many things i'm working on). So yeah.
