The Last Stage

Just a short post to let everyone know that I've made it home in one piece, and so has my luggage, and my home was still in one piece when I got back. These are all good things. I'm now slowly slipping back into my usual (and rather mundane) routine. I expect to have a few more posts reflecting on my trip, and now that I've got my notes from the seminar unpacked I will start writing about that again too (and to all the UofA folks who started reading this for news of the seminar and are still reading, thank you for your patience).

For now though, I'm content to leave it at this:

Roads go ever ever on Under cloud and under star Yet feet that wandering have gone Turn at last to home afar.

I've wandered a lot in the past month, but I'm glad to have turned my feet at last to home. I had a great time, but I'm glad to be back. Travel is good, but so's coming home.

(For those of you who are wondering about the post title and the quote: They're references to the end of "The Hobbit" which is still, I think, my favorite travel story.)
