Endings

As the fireworks faded away on the TV screen, we looked at each other.

‘So,’ said my 10-year-old, ‘that was the World Cup.’

‘Fantastic, hey?’ said his dad.

We sat a little dazed, but feeling happy that we had witnessed something amazing that we would never forget.

It made me realise the importance of a closing ceremony. Whether it’s a matric dance, a netball prize-giving or the last bows at the concert, we have a need to make a formal goodbye.

So here are some stories about landmarks and moments and saying goodbye.
