Hey ya’ll. Flying across the continent yesterday I was once again surprised what a differance a thousand miles can make. The aircraft cabin is like a long tunnel that opens up to a new reality when the doors open. I love traveling for that reason. From the warm sunshine of Dallas Texas to the bitter cold and constant dark rain of Vancouver BC the world’s couldn’t seem more antipodal. When Coco Chanel first made suntans popular she inadvertently set off an explosion of tourism to warm tropical places. Prior to that people in North America thought that the world was like a clock…one half sunshine and the other biting winter. Now at least we have a choice. I’m not sure Vancouver was the right choice for me…but I don’t have to stay. I am editing my novel feverishly and hoping that this book…my seventh…is the one that lets me buy a tropical island where winter exists only in the postcards from the darklands I will leave behind me. To all of you…best wishes….wherever you are.
