Packed and ready to go
We are all packed, suitcases near the door, ready for our escape down I-91 to Hartford at 4:30 a.m. Purchased a portable CD player to listen to our Bach, Mozart, Credence, Eric Burden, Sinatra, and finish From Yao to Mao CD lecture series on 5,000 years of Chinese history.
I have also selected reading material : Weather Permitting: Poems by Stephen Sandy (read at the 2005 Brattleboro Literary Festival), and China's new rulers : the secret files by Andrew J. Nathan and Bruce Gilley. Hmmm, this should be interesting.
