1.32am, Tuesday 22nd January 2008

And here I am, watching the funeral of Sir Edmund Hilary on Television One back home in New Zealand.

It's so much sadder than I knew to expect. He's just always been there, this guy who was first to climb Everest.

Listening to his family speak of him, now the television presenters, seeing New Zealanders lining the streets as his coffin travels to the cemetery, hearing Dave Dobbyn's song Loyal playing ... sad and very homesick but glad I was able to see it.
