I have entered the tunnel and come out the other side in one piece, with my sanity still clinging to me like a sweaty old shirt. I may still have a final wrap up and epilogue chapter left to write, but the story as it was meant to be told has finished. Characters have died, others have been changed for good or bad, and some will never look at life the same again after I have meddled in their affairs. They have weathered the storm just like me and have survived – even those who were tattered and torn in the process.
To them I say thank you for the journey and for allowing me to finish this part of the story. I look forward to seeing you soon as we carry on the adventure.
