My planned departure in a few days has provided a break to the monotony and brought frenetic packing / tying up loose ends.
I made time to complete the tradition of leaving a set of prayer flags fluttering behind. This set is blowing in the breeze at the East end of the island where others have put up signs to point towards home. Years ago someone put up the 'Just Ahead, McDonalds - 1500 miles' sign during their free time.
This set will join the flags I've left behind at many previous postings. Perhaps my small attempt to leave a mark on the land. No kids, so I need something to remind people, "I was here, don't forget me"
