I received my flights out of New Zealand late last night. This final formality has released a wee bit of pressure. If I was to write a posthumous pastiche to this period… it would be a long series of pauses…..
A heartfelt thank you for the comments and messages.

Rehoming Dragons is fraught with danger it appears. I first noticed this when I had to repatriate Puff. His first home enquired about cutting his base flat so he would stand freely. He is always leading forward. He was then put outside under a tarp. I promptly liberated him and took him on a Thelma and Loiuseque road trip.
At his next stop, he was hidden away in case the dog tried to chew him. He came out for a party.

When Guests enquired about painting or changing him. He promptly fell tactically maiming them.

I evicted myself on Father’s Day. The irony of this is not lost upon me but the new moon is more cosmic.
My new lair will suffice until the 17th when I shall embolden myself with a laborious quest of goodbyes until I depart by air of course.
I do not have a return window at the moment. This is an odd sensation, but for the first time in a long time I am not of a mind to worry about things that have not happened.
