Time for the people to speak
The final day and confidence is the keynote on either side. Certainly, that was so at the two competing rallies I attended in Glasgow.
At the Yes event in the city's Buchanan Street, the talk was of empowering a generation. The talk was of enabling Scotland to build a more prosperous and just society.
At the Better Together event in Maryhill Community Hall, the talk was of the true patriotic option being a No vote, blending more powers with continuity in a reformed UK.
Also in our end is our beginning. Each side seeks to identify and challenge a core weakness in their opponents' pitch.
Yes say that the promise of more powers is illusory, that there is evidence of mounting Tory disquiet with the concept. No say that there are still no clear answers on the currency. Naturally, both claims draw counter-attacks.
Political parties make power play
Perhaps it might help if we took a little look at the pledge of more powers set out by the pro Union parties today.
The one that was trailed last night by Gordon Brown and covered on the telly and the wireless.
Impassioned pleas as end in sight
Entirely understandably, there is the sense of an end game. But that does not mean in the slightest that the passion has drained from this referendum. Absolutely the reverse.
Two speeches today exemplify that phenomenon, in different ways. Both Alex Salmond and David Cameron delivered emotive and emotional arguments.
A remarkable electoral event
So where are we?
With each side eager to assign gloom and despondency to the other. Chaos, says one. Despair, says the other.
Different perspectives. Different pitches. Different leaders. Different venues. But a common thread.
David Cameron, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg all campaigned in Scotland today urging people to reject independence.
Symbolism and pragmatism
Symbolism all around. Behind the three pro-Union Scottish party leaders, the Holyrood Parliament. Beyond, in the distance, Calton Hill where they previously declared their joint support for more devolved power.
And the first minister?
Together, yes - but scarcely chums
It may not be outright panic. But it is hardly calm, measured insouciance either.
Better days may - or may not - return for Better Together but, right now, it is scarcely glad confident morning.
Are you excited or anxious ahead of the referendum?
Consider this referendum. Yes, yes, I know, you do little else. But reflect upon the emotions stirred by said plebiscite.
Are you enthralled or enervated? Are you intrigued or underwhelmed? Perhaps above all, are you enthused by the prospect of independence - or apprehensive? Are you excited or anxious?
The social justice competition
Both are party leaders. Both are offering "social justice" as a key objective.
However, Ed Miliband and Alex Salmond reach rather different conclusions as to the best way to deliver that aim.
Why turning up matters
Turning up matters. (Just ask the St Mirren defence who found, on Saturday, that the mighty Dundee United attack had decided to step up their game at precisely the right moment. Or, indeed, moments. A magnificent trio of them.)
In the referendum campaign, both sides are, of course, seeking every vote.
