He sits by his desk and holds up a spoon. Silver and not new; he remembers his mother setting them on the table (he also remembers the spoons in Lobelia's care but that's, he decides, for another time).

In particular, the rounded part of the spoon catches his eye. Dwarves have used them, not knowing their value.

To him, any way.

Dwarves. That's the path he wants.

These spoons, like dwarves he knew, were sturdy and dependable. Like Old Toby, they were reliable. The rounded part of the spoon could be filled … then emptied. Like him, he realises. He could be filled with mathoms over the years. New knowledge and skills. New memories.

Out with the old, in with the new. Like, he twirls it in his fingers, a spoon.

He rises from his chair, puts the spoon on his desk and goes to let in the new year.
