52 Songs...53 Stories - closedown

[EDIT: Now available as an ebook]



The fifty-second and last week of 52 Songs, 52 Stories. Which, due to the vagaries of the calendar, and my timing, turns out to be 53 stories. The fifty-third, and last, story: Closedown. It's been a slog at times, when inspiration has seemed very far away, and a lot else has been going on, but I am pleased that I stuck with it to the end.
