Off to Rivendell

March 10, 2009 / Garden Variety’s last post.

Kris is leaving Bag End:

Very few of us will ever win, finally and for all time, the goals we seek: perfect happiness, enlightenment, the discovery of an authentic self or true love can only ever be momentary; but we try. This blog has been part of my trying, and though I’ll never quite find the balance I want, I have written out myself to a point of calm and understanding. Finis.

Bon voyage. Garden Variety will be greatly missed.

    It’s me, Dave, from your first year of law at UQ. I found your blog, your photo, your stories. I am so happy you’re happy. I never forgot you and will always be grateful to have have known you. You will never know how much influence you had on my life. I am a better man for having had you as my friend, even for so brief a time.
