Then fate intervened.
Now I’m back from three weeks in Thailand (on assignment for MORE magazine) and about to spend July teaching creative nonfiction in a fabulous program at the Paris American Academy. Ensconced in a sweet little studio apt. on Rue Linné. With a lovely band of colleagues and many talented students. In France. Where they have baguettes.
Bottom line 1: If ever there were an argument for keeping your passport up to date…. Bottom Line 2: If anyone hears me complaining about ANYTHING in the next month or so, tell me to zip it.
