Post PhD - Who's the audience?

What happens when I finish? The end maybe in sight - well at least in the next year or so.  What then? Who is the audience, apart from supervisors and examiners? Maybe...the Librarian ... with enough wine and chocolates to convince him that proof reading for spliced commas and other grammatical disasters is important. How will I feel? Elated, Ready for a long holiday! Ready to rejoin the human race – the family and friends? Able to do things I've been putting off? Do I select elements of the thesis  to develop and rewrite for publication? Do I select elements for conference presentation? Is there a book of Ernst's life waiting to be written?
Ah well... the end will not be reached unless I begin my next chapter on Pedagogy and Place in Ernst's work.
