I had my last official service at Karori Anglican Church on Sunday night. After three and a half years on staff, and five years as part of the community, farewells are hard.

I don't like goodbyes.

A lot of people said a lot of nice things. Too many nice things. I hope to remember them, to treasure them. I wish i could believe them.

The work is far from done. The opportunities slip away. The dream remains.

January looms ahead as a busy month of preparation, packing, camping. And then moving.

I have much to savor. Moments, glimpses, smiles, friendships.

"I say 'ka kite ano' and leave it at that."
