Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then?
I cannot say.
-J.R.R. Tolkein, in The Fellowship of the Ring (p. 38)
Tauranga, you’ll always be home.
See you again.
