Last Hurrah

I have a love-hate relationship with goodbyes. They force me to realise that there are so many fantastic people in my life. I worry that I am not as good a friend to people as they deserve. It is so strange that a homecoming is a step into the unknown in a way that no leaving has ever been. As Leontia Flynn says, "The furthest distances I have travelled have been those between people, and what survives of holidaying briefly in their lives." I will miss so much about Perth, but more than that, I will miss the great friendships I have made here, especially those cemented in the last couple of weeks. So, not goodbye, but see you soon, somewhere. Now, my GIANT backside will pedal off up the hill towards home  happy, but a wee bit sad. I am looking for steeper hills and higher summits, I suppose. I am off to pack up my bike – talk to you from the other side. D
