When the Phone Rings at 3 A.M. …
Something’s Afoot!

Last Saturday at 3 a.m. my home phone rang. It was my Hong Kong client canceling yesterday’s event—just hours before I was due to leave. I inform you of this because it means that my “after 40 years” trip to Vietnam also bit the dust; hence no [brilliant, incisive, soul-searching …] commentary associated therewith.

Off to Seoul tomorrow!
