self at window

I'm off to Albany NY in the morning. My sister and I will meet, spend 4 days holed up without distractions and finish the edit on this book. Rather than take the train, we found a halfway point by car, only 3.5 hours to Albany between us.

Mapquest says 3 hours 31 minutes for her, and 3 hours, 19 minutes for me. Though mine is an extra 34 miles, I suspect she has windy country Vermont roads ahead of her. I'm known as a very light packer, when I travel by plane. I'd rather do without, than carry heavy luggage. Not this time, I'm loading up the car, even bringing my own feather pillows.

You think your car is loaded. I can hardly see out the back over the cappuccino machine, Vita-mixer, food processor, coffee grinder, juicer, utensils, dishes and food stuffs. Besides all the veggies that I love, I'm loaded down with voluptuous organic fruit: apples, oranges, mangos, dates, pineapples, bananas, apricots, peaches, pears--and something new--three "young" coconuts fresh from Thailand. Oh, that reminds me. Need to pack the machete.

Oh, don't worry. We won't be eating the whole time--you just won't have any excuse to leave the room!

To keep you busy, I'm bringing two laptops, wireless network, laser printer and reams of paper. To keep me busy, a box of red pens.
