Writing and teaching in Provence--just barely

Friends, I have to pinch myself. Here I am in France--beautiful Provence--teaching what I love to a group of wonderful people, writers, whom I've come to know and appreciate quickly; it doesn't get much better.

But were it not for my Congressman, and a fast car, I would be at home right now, cooling my heels in total frustration. Let me explain: it was my passport...I had applied to have it renewed months ago and--okay, you know what I'm going to say next, don't you. I put the whole scary story in this column. Enjoy.

If you think you'll want to travel any time in the near future, even if you have nothing planned--please, please start the process NOW.
