In two days I shall become a foreigner

Los Angeles

Departure -2 and Counting

In two days I shall become a foreigner.

I’m in the final stages of confirming reservations and sorting out what to pack for the adventure upon which I am about to set out. I checked the weather in London—it’s to be a bit of rain intermixed with a bit of sunshine here and there over the course of the next week. It shall be perfect. I need to make sure to remember to pack my traveling umbrella though…

As Sir Winston said in the House of Commons in 1945:

‘It is a mistake to look too far ahead. Only one link in the chain of destiny can be handled at the time.’
